Embracing change and new creative ideas for communities.
No single definition of ethnography exists. Ethnography, through participant-observation, interviewing, and other qualitative techniques, is a "deliberate attempt to generate more data than the researcher is aware of at the time of collection," and is thus eminently suited to the study of unpredictable outcomes, complex emerging social formations, and technological and market change.
Sixty one year young Marine's Mission to Prevent Suicides
North Carolina's hot, steaming summer, as usual scorched Weldon's pavements and scattered most people into cool air conditioned rooms to beat the heat but retiredMarine Chuck Lewis (61 years young) said, "he decided one day to take a little stroll" and walked approximately 3200 miles from Seattle, Washington, on March 31, 2013 to arrive in Weldon, North Carolina on September 12, 2013 for his "Fallen brothers."
It's not about heroism but it's about "standing up to make a difference" to help prevent the rising suicide rates among our young men and women who sacrificed their lives serving, in Iraq, Afganastan and other military deployments for Americans who would rather beat the heat and forget our soldiers. Oh sure, it's easy to say thank you to our soldiers on Facebook and other social media sites but how many are willing to take a few minutes, to donate to a worthy cause or walk the extra mile for the wounded and disabled vets.
It was near noontime when I recieved a call from Mayor Julia Meacham to grab a camera and meet Chuck at one of our favorite restaurants, Jermonico's Cafe and Catering on route 158. Well, I don't believe in coincidences, niether does Chuck and so as I rushed from Town Hall to my apt and down the stairs. Low and behold, there was Chuck and pushcart bearing a sign in red letters "Walking for the Fallen." Here's what Chuck had to say about his mission to help prevent suicides of soldiers suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). .
