Wes Moore: Why I came back to Baltimore
Since my family and I made the decision to leave New York and come back home to Baltimore, I have been fascinated by the reaction of so many of my friends and family who still call Charm City home. For them, the response can be summed up in one word: "Why?" Many, not sure why I would leave New York to come back to Baltimore, have asked me if everything was all right. The wonder doesn't stop at my immediate circle; even the underwriters for my mortgage asked me to write a letter of explanation.
