It’s payback time.

The USA can be a big, sprawling, loud in-your-face kind of place. Some like it, some don’t. But, it’s not invincible, and still has many hills to climb when it come to equality for all. Some cities are booming, others are crumbling. This has been a trend since the 1970’s, and there are plenty of locations that backup this trend. Memphis, Birmingham, Baltimore  and even St. Louis with 2082.29 violent crimes per 100,000 people recorded in 2019.

But, as ever, and as always, there are those denizens who will not take no for an answer. They’ll fight to make things right. One such place is Michigan. Once a manufacturing powerhouse, its primary city, Detroit was home to companies such as Ford, General Motors and more. But, with the advent of less expensive cars from places like Japan, Detroit could not compete. Factories closed, cities fell into ruin and Detroit faltered.

In recent days, though, some companies – in this case Ford – have taken the bull by the horns and have started fighting back and giving back. Here, we discover how executive chair of Ford Motor Company, Bill Ford, has started a renaissance in the city. Not so much in manufacturing again, but in breathing new life back into the city’s institutions.

We laud this approach and hope all cities will follow Bill Ford’s lead. It is ironic that it starts with rail.
