Labor day parade. A working class city celebrates the American worker.

Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.

This is great! What an unexpected sight at a Labor Day parade! ( Love the hat!) Maybe he's worried about what kind of jobs will be waiting for him in a few years.

Love the photo Ralph. He should be worried. Even if there are the right policies put in place, and I don't see evidence of that happening currently, it will take a generation at least to right the ship.

It was great meeting you on Belle Isle yesterday. Loved the discussion. Hope to see you again soon.

And no where better than Detroit to celebrate the contributions the Working Class has made to not only the city, but also the nation. Nice shot!

Never a bigger hope. I hope the shirts logo comes to be reality. Nicely caught Ralph.
