I like to keep the subject matter on the photo blog pretty light, but I couldn’t stop running this story through my head, why things just didn’t add up, didn’t make sense and then I realized the truth, the real story, doesn’t matter. I don’t know what happened at the BP gas station where Micheal Haynes was shot nor do I know what happened at Sinai Grace Hospital where Haynes was taken and subsequently died. I don’t know who did what or who did nothing. I do know, yet another young man in Detroit is dead and in the end, we are all responsible because this should not happen to anybody, anywhere, ever. Somehow, we all have to be better because with each passing, whether each of us is involved or not, we are all lessened.
