There was a resiliency that strengthened the people to look beyond the wars and tragedies that once impacted a nation. For those who were left behind, it was a roadmap into their futures and the understood importance of one man’s decision to leave his life behind so to fight for someone else’s life instead. It was less than a year since returning home from Iraq before he caught the attention of fellow Marine Corps veteran and the city’s first black mayor. It was persuasion that gripped him. Having no interest in politics, he fell hard to his curiosity and accepted a once in a lifetime invitation that would ultimately introduce him to his future. Holding to the thinking that in order to win you must lose first, he accepted the challenges that were waiting for him. Delivering too little to too few, but more tragically, shamefully, existed the failure to properly care for a city and its people. It would take more than an election to restore the people. It would take charity and integrity. With time that growth would only collapse for the city skyline, for the flight of the middle class would soon be taken over by its urban buildings and rising crime rates. Holding itself to rebirth, a second chance to rebuild the coastline emerged, as the gleam of new buildings and the disparity of income of the older, forgotten neighborhoods would fade into the city scenery. With the dysfunction of a political system still alive, there was less promise for reform.
