Living in the rural town of Rowland, NC takes some time getting used to. Here you will find a melting pot of cultures from African Americans, Caucasians, Native Americans ( Lumbees ), Mexicans, and individuals that have multiple ethnic backgrounds. The atmosphere would include majority of farm land, horses, and a small town home feel. We are located 10 miles from the South Carolina/ North Carolina line also known as South of the Border. Locals are the people who keep the area going ,but I have lived in the city off and on growing up. We have people from New York, Georgia, Virginia, and North Carolina coming back to their roots to visit people who have lived in the area up to 80+ years. There's no place that can compare to home although there are many cities I would visit. In conclusion, It's sad to report that this area is stressed due to the increase in crime of the younger generation and I would hate to raise my children in Rowland because there is a limited supply of jobs, money, and overall support to leave the area.

If I was a visitor from out of town I would be sure to follow the main road which leads to interstate 95. This area is very unsafe when getting off the beaten path. I am familiar with the local gangs and what the colors represent. The police are also aware of the crime rate but unfortunately due to budget cuts there's only 3 known cops. Of course the locals know the shortage in law enforcement so they feel free to do as they please. The nearest hospitals are 25 miles away, one in NC and Dillon, South Carolina. Therefore, majority of the community is LPN or have a background in the medical field so the worst won't happen to anyone's family member. My concern would be my elderly grandmother who stays at home while my grandpa is away driving trucks. If I had one wish I would pray that my grandparents be taken care of for the rest of their lives here on Earth because they had to work the farms, watch the other children, and raise 3 generations from their children to the great-grandchildren. I am in school so I can give back a piece of what they instilled in me growing up and even to this very day.
