Best Reason to Stay in Baltimore: The City Needs You

There are plenty of reasons to stick around in the city: the art galleries, the theatre scene, the musicians, the restaurants, the bookstores, the parks, the people…and especially the good Samaritan who painted the hopeful mural on the boarded-up door of one of the above-mentioned vacants, a persevering against-all-odds resident who is determined not to cut and run when things get bad but who acknowledges the city’s myriad problems and then, eschewing that famous shrug of complacency surrounding ineptitude and corruption (the ole, “That’s Baltimore for ya!”) rolls up his or her sleeves and gets to work—because Baltimore needs more people like that. Maybe each of us can be one of them?
