It was the middle of the night in winter 2016 and I heard firetrucks nearby. The abandoned house on the corner of Midland and Braile was on fire. Soon after the fire, I asked my daughter to play the part of the mourner and help us pay homage to the home that would soon be forgotten. We wondered what would become of this empty lot. I even called the city and asked if I could purchase it, but they said, no. Then one day, the city sent workers to plant grass seeds. In fall 2017, my son Light was thrilled to see leaves falling off the large tree on the corner of Midland and Braile. I took some quick footage of him playing with the leaves. My neighbor Carole asked if I would be willing to facilitate tire-painting with kids on the block. These tires would be used in the new community garden on Midland and Braile. Then came winter and time for my son to play with the snow. My daughter Cedar also writes a poem about the fire. This video documents the redemption of one piece of land in Detroit.
