speramus meliora; resurget cineribus

this isn't the first time detroit has found itself in dire straits. after all, look at them words on the city's flag: aperamus meliora; resurget cineribus. father gabriel richard spoke those words after the city burned to the ground in 1805. they mean: "we hope for better things; it will rise from the ashes."

Photo: Don't panic. This isn't the first time Detroit has found itself in dire straits. After all, look at them words on our flag: Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus. Father Gabriel Richard spoke those words after the city burned to the ground in 1805. They mean: "We hope for better things; it will rise from the ashes." Detroit has picked itself off the ground, dusted itself off and achieved better things before. It can do it again. These are dark days - but what about Detroit's track record for comebacks would have you doubting that it can do it again? So hang in there, Detroit. Things will get better. -d.a.

but in these days of vulture capitalism, can it? will the banks and the 1 %ers let it?

the vultures are already looking to abscond with the city's art.
