David Kasbow, a proud Detroiter, has been giving back to the city of his birth since the year he graduated from UTS with a Master in Religious Education in 1991. Giving back for Kasbow means what he calls, “restoring the severe brokenness” found there, and his chief restorative instrument is interfaith engagement.

There's a band that's been around since the mid-1960s which recently celebrated their staying power with a farewell performance shown in movie theaters nationwide – perhaps even worldwide – celebrating their 50th anniversary with the well-known catch phrase, “what a long, strange trip it's been.” It's a line, of course, taken from one of their most popular songs.
