“To some, Detroit may be a symbol of urban decay; but not to the French man I met today at the homeless feeding. He was walking around snapping photos of Roosevelt Park and the Michigan Central Train Station. He was so fascinated with the view of the very iconic and very abandoned Michigan Central train station!! He even asked if it was for sale I replied with or without the skeletons/ghosts living in the building. Thanks to this French man from France I was right in front of the gate and this is the closest I’ve been to it in the past 23 years. The thing is it’s not how you fall that defines you as a person, but how you rise up again. I think that says a lot about DETROIT” -Nahid
