Time magazine's online project highlighting the ups and downs of Detroit is a feature that is quite insightful. Time's project attempts to give people in other parts of the country an inkling of what it's like to live in an area that relied so heavily on one industry, and what the people of the area have been doing to survive, and flourish, despite the withering of the auto industry. With more than two-dozen articles and photo features on every major aspect of Detroit, the project touches on failures, successes, aspirations, and realities. The article on the influx of Iraqi refugees since 2007, entitled "For Iraqi Refugees, A City of Hope," shows how the same city can mean the end of a life to some, and a chance at a beginning, to others. Time's yearlong project allows readers to gain some perspective on those enduring a uniquely uncertain time.
