PDCCC Movie Night – Bully

Documentary – Bully (note: October is National Bully Prevention Month)
 
Rating: PG-13
 
Runtime: 94 min
 
Synopsis: At a point in time when bullying in America has reached epidemic proportions, Emmy-winning director Lee Hirsch invites viewers to spend a year in the lives of students and parents who contend with public torment and humiliation on a daily basis. By following the young victims from the classroom to their living rooms, we are given an intimate glimpse into the effects bullying has on their families and their developing sense of self-worth. Meanwhile, parents, administrators, and other students struggle to find a workable solution to the problem that will never go away unless we all stand up and face it eye to eye.
 
In support of National Bully Prevention Month, Paul D. Camp Community College will hold a showing of “Bully,” during its free movie night series on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 at 4 p.m. on the Hobbs Suffolk Campus, 271 Kenyon Road, and 7 p.m. at the Workforce Development Center in Franklin, 100 North College Drive.

PDCCC Movie Night – The Words

The Words -Sponsored by the Literary Club-
 
The Literary Club at Paul D.

The movie, rated PG-13, is about a successful writer who finds he must pay a steep price for stealing another’s work. The film is 105 minutes. A discussion, led by Literary Club officers/members Courtney Wright in Suffolk and Ja’Lisa Gonzalez in Franklin will follow the movie. For more information, email nwarren@pdc.edu or call 757-569-6748.
 
Synopsis: The layered romantic drama The Words follows young writer Rory Jansen who finally achieves long sought after literary success after publishing the next great American novel. There’s only one catch – he didn’t write it. As the past comes back to haunt him and his literary star continues to rise, Jansen is forced to confront the steep price that must be paid for stealing another man’s work and for placing ambition and success above life’s most fundamental three words.

  • Johnson is an artist, a poet and an actress, who has received national and international attention from her poetic interpretation of Anne Frank’s diary. Among her other published works, she has co-authored a suspense novel and penned a romantic comedy. She is a member of the Hampton Roads Writers and the Chesapeake Romance Writers.
  • The founder of Women Empowered in the Millennium Inc. and Angela Corprew-Boyd Ministries Inc., the Elder and author Corprew-Boyd conducts Empowered Leadership Training sessions. She has traveled across the globe to teach and preach the gospel and to serve as a conference consultant.
  • A Suffolk native, Giles is a self-taught artist, specializing in watercolors. He has self-published two books. He has lived in many different countries, which have served as inspirations for some of his artwork. He has shown in numerous galleries and his work has been showcased at many festivals.
  • Best known for his dark fantasy thrillers about vampires being used by the U.S. military, Ruggiero has written a series of books on the subject. He has his own short story collection, “Humans Need Not Apply,” and his short stories are included in several anthologies. Audio versions of some of his books will be available this year.

Following the panel readings, the authors will be available to autograph books.
 
The Literary Festival will also be highlighted by poetry open-mic sessions, readings from the student poetry contest winners and raffles. All raffle proceeds will support the PDCCC Literary Club’s efforts to continue offering community programs and college events.

FINDING HUMOR IN GRIEF
By: Dr. Ruth L. Baskerville

Overview

At the time of my husband’s untimely death, we had been married forty-five years, which meant I had not just lost my one true love, but I was also lost! We were each other’s best friends, and whatever one of us did was filtered through the lens of what we knew about the other’s desires.
I thought it impossible to survive without him because there were too many tasks, decisions, plans that he alone managed. As I shared with close friends my struggle to accomplish left-brain tasks previously foreign to me, they laughed heartily.

I saw that grief had a funny side. Each segment of my book tells a different aspect of my journey to successfully function without Waverly. I reveal my intimate thoughts and actions in a stream-of-conscience writing style, rather than to tell my story in chronological order. Most experiences are highly amusing, but for times when I found no humor, I created a chapter called “Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This.” Writing this book was cathartic for me, but I also wanted to connect with readers who are mourning like I am. Humor is excellent medicine for the ailing mind, body and soul.

I apologized to a dear friend for naively thinking that grieving over the loss of her husband was something that diminished in time. I foolishly likened her grief to a wound that looked awfully painful at first, but got better each day until only a tiny scar remained. I now know that these distinct scars will never disappear, and that coping with grief is the only way to find a measure of happiness again. It’s called a “new normal.”

I’ve learned that grief is like a roller coaster, where the ride never ends, and the goal is to find the courage to let go your grip of the safety bar and raise your arms high in the air, as you “free fall” with confidence that you’ll land safely, in your right mind.
