Pittsburgh has shown the world its greatness in times of tragedy

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

I believe the recent G-20 summit in Pittsburgh was a better way to market our city to more people around the world than any other venue. Our fantastic transition from industrial output to medical and high technology was a real draw for decision making by the Obama administration.

There are other aspects of our great community which I feel need to be addressed. Besides our celebrations of the Super Bowl and Stanley Cup, which put our city in the limelight, our city unified in times of adversity this year. Our city really came together after the Stanton Heights tragedy and the shootings at the Collier fitness center. The sensitive and caring way many different groups came together showed a great side of Pittsburgh.

This could have had some influence on how the nation and the world viewed Pittsburgh.
