Over the next several months, special correspondent Melissa Block is reporting from communities large and small to capture how people's identity is shaped by where they live. What's important in folks' lives? How does a community's identity evolve over time? What does the future look like to the people in that place?
And we need your help! What places should we go? What communities should we pay attention to? Who are the characters we should spend time with?
Do you know a school teacher in a small village in Alaska? Or a waterfowl hunter in the lakes and marshes of Maine? How about an ER doctor in Chicago? Someone making a difference in their community — who can be our tour guide to a place off the beaten path — or on it.
Sky's the limit — we're looking to explore our land from coast to coast.
