A rebuttal to resignation

I've heard a number of negative, resigned comments about the city in the past week, including the op-ed I linked to on Thursday. The sentiment is justified -- Detroit grinds people down. But working there can also be uplifting in a way that Jackie Victor, co-founder of Avalon Bakery, put best last summer in an essay called "Detroit Is a Spiritual City." Quoting excerpts doesn't do it justice; just read it.
