“Only a life lived in the service to others is worth living.”-Albert Einstein

Service to others includes the men and women who have served our country in war. For those lucky enough to make it home, many have difficulty adjusting back to civilian life. To help illustrate this reality, Henry Schuster, the producer behind 60 Minutes, reported in a blog post:

“The costs of war aren’t always obvious or immediate. A few months after I got back last year from a trip to Afghanistan, I got a call from one of the Marines with whom we were embedded. He couldn’t sleep; he was drinking heavily; was afraid he was going to kill his dog and couldn’t stop arguing with his girlfriend; he’d moved out on her and was living in the barracks. Already on what they call “a bag o’meds,” a pharmaceutical cocktail prescribed by a Navy doctor, he was clearly suffering from PTSD – post-traumatic stress disorder. He didn’t want to ask anyone at his base for help because he thought it would count against him. I urged him, pleaded with him, to get help.”

Charles Village Parade

The most successful and sustainable community development campaigns are linked to five strategic factors, known as the Five Cs: Community, Connections, Control, Cash, and Collective Action. These factors are based on an examination of 150 years of research and field experience.

Putting research to action, Campaign Consultation CEO, Steven Rivelis, organized the first Charles Village Parade in 1998, in the Baltimore City neighborhood where he lives and worked. The goal of the parade was to help generate a sense of community and forge deeper connections within the community–two of the key five strategic factors.

This award winning parade included youth marching bands, art cars from as far away as Texas, FiFi the 50 foot tall pink poodle, a wide array of diverse community groups, and village noise makers.

Delighting the crowd that gathered along St. Paul and Charles Streets, the Charles Village Parade was a highlight of the Charles Village Festival, held annually on the first weekend in June.
