I've lived in Detroit my entire life. I consider myself a true native because I've never lived outside the city limits. Although I have not lost faith in the fact that Detroit will rebound (which in all honesty it has been rebounding for years already, people just didn't notice), I have personal and professional goals that may at some point require that I move away so that I can also prosper. Having worked in different industries in Detroit from banking, health care and entertainment, I have seen a lot of the challenges and potential. Detroit residents have to stop relying so much on the cooperation of the government and start supporting each other more. The majority if growth hasn't been because of support from city government, it has been because of the determination of the people who are willing to invest in the city with their own finances and ideas, and they don't do it all just to make profits. They do it because they see opportunities that can help others now with profits coming down the road. More people should think that way instead of only looking out for themselves and thinking about short term profits that don't net long term impact.

I am very happy to hear the confidence in the city rebounding, I totally agree. I hope that with the new companies moving into the city, they would be interested in having another incentive program for people to move back into the city.
