Because I am a Detroit, and am proud to say it. I may no longer live in the city, infact I have live out of the city longerthen I lived in it, but I am Detroit….
My name is Cassie and I’m from a small town in North Carolina, where our largest building is Wal-Mart. I have always wanted to experience life in a big city, and you did not disappoint, but rather exceeded my expectations. You see, I was expecting a city filled with broken dreams and shattered glass, a city devoid of life and hope. I expected a scene of desolation against the backdrop of a dead city.
