Is there any beauty left in Flint, Michigan

in #life3 years ago


Hi guys,

Last night I was watching the national news and there was a little blip about some violence in Flint Michigan. It just so happens Flint is about 15 miles north of me and is the closest mid-sized City. I grew up here and spent a lot of time in Flint over the years. My wife's family owns a welding supply company that's been there since 1938. I have to say over the years Flint has provided me and my family a lot of good things. However, if I'm traveling or talking to people online from around the world I find that many are familiar with Flint but it's always because of something negative (violence, Drug abuse, General Motors factory closings, and the latest lead in the water).

This morning I went outside to shovel the walk, we had gotten about 4 inches of snow overnight I paused to look around and it kind of dawned on me that this is a really beautiful place and maybe I should share some good things about this area to people around the world. I took my phone out and made the video that you see above. From time to time I think I will provide some content about the good things that happen here and around Flint. I hope you enjoy this little snippet of video that I'm providing and maybe it will give you a little lift for the rest of your day. Thank you for being here and making the world a better place.

Jeff

Look at the full half.
At least you are not in Europe.

Seeing everything turned to white is for sure a lovely feeling. Its an eye catcher and for sure snow is the nature best art.

when there is snow ,there is peace
there is nothing more beautiful than snow

I'd say that Michigan itself is a beauty!!
So after a blanket of snow covers it's surface it becomes more beautiful then before!!
So yes there's still a lot of beauty left in this beautiful place!!!
