I just saw this article on CNN. A native of Detroit, Michigan, Viola Vaughn’s seen more than her share of tragedy and heartbreak, but still managed to do what most never would never even attempt. She’s made life better for those around her, and in doing so has made her own life better. In today’s “winner take all society,” it’s really nice to see someone do something that isn’t focused solely on the bottom line, or at least a bottom line that isn’t just money.

If this can happen in Africa, why can it not happen in the U.S., and specifically, why can it not happen in Detroit? And if it has happened, or is happening, I want to know about it.
