Presidential Proclamation — National Mentoring Month


At the heart of America’s promise is the belief that we all do better when everyone has a fair shot at reaching for their dreams. Throughout our Nation’s history, Americans of every background have worked to uphold this ideal, joining together in common purpose to serve as mentors and lift up our country’s youth. During National Mentoring Month, we honor all those who continuously strive to provide young people with the resources and support they need and deserve, and we recommit to building a society in which all mentors and mentees can thrive in mutual learning relationships.

By sharing their own stories and offering guidance and advice, mentors can instill a sense of infinite possibility in the hearts and minds of their mentees, demonstrating that with hard work and passion, nothing is beyond their potential. Whether simply offering a compassionate ear or actively teaching and inspiring curiosity, mentors can play pivotal roles in young peoples’ lives. When given a chance to use their talents and abilities to engage in their communities and contribute to our world, our Nation’s youth rise to the challenge. They make significant impacts in their communities and shape a brighter future for coming generations.

My Administration is committed to fostering opportunities for mentorship — because when our children have strong, positive role models to look up to, they grow up to be good neighbors and good fellow citizens. Through the My Brother’s Keeper initiative, we are working with local governments, businesses, and charitable organizations across our country to connect more of our youth to effective mentoring programs and support networks to reinforce the fact that all young people are valued and to empower them with the skills they need to reach their full potential. We have achieved the highest high school graduation rate on record — 82 percent — and we remain focused on setting high standards that will help our students graduate ready for college and careers. In addition, we are supporting job-driven training initiatives like apprenticeships so our doers and dreamers can earn and learn at the same time. And through First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher initiative, we are working to ensure every student has the opportunity to pursue their education and life goals.

Every young person can benefit from having a mentor, and all people carry unique ideas and experiences they can employ as a mentor. I encourage all Americans to visit to learn more about opportunities to make a lasting difference in the lives of our youth. This month, let us pledge our support for our Nation’s young people, and let us honor those who give of themselves to uplift our next generation. Working together, we can provide every child with the tools, guidance, and confidence they need to flourish and succeed.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 2016 as National Mentoring Month. I call upon public officials, business and community leaders, educators, and Americans across the country to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of December, in the year of our Lord two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.

The Past Is Your Lesson

The Past Is Your Lesson

When you look back, you see how far you have gone, and seeing the distance from where you were to where you are now is encouraging.   


Knowing that you have made a huge improvement by moving away from your unhealthy and toxic past will give you a sense of fulfillment.  It will make you want to keep pushing and never stop.

You need to forget some feelings but you need to remember the lessons that came with the experience.  Revisiting the past will remind you of how you managed to survive it and what brought you where you are.

In the daily hustle and bustle of life, it is easy to be caught up in the middle of life’s chaos and forget your purpose.  Looking back will remind you of why you are here in the first place and where exactly you are going.  It will give you a sense of direction.


When you look back, you get in touch with your inner self; who you were and what molded you to become who you are right now. Sometimes closure is needed. You can’t heal if you are not willing to even acknowledge a painful situation. That pain will just continue to manifest itself in other areas of your life.

Looking back is an opportunity to laugh at yourself.  All your boo boos in the past, all your wrong decisions that led you to the right one.  Those memories can all put a smile on your face when you’re over the bitterness.  It is especially fun to relive your past with friends who will not judge you for your mistakes.


You prevent history from repeating itself.  You prevent yourself from committing the same mistakes all over again because looking back will refresh your memory as to what it was you vowed to never do again.

When you look back, you may realize that you have let many opportunities pass you by. Maybe you did not say the words you should have said.  Because of that, you will grab every opportunity given to you. Now you know better.  All because you’re past reminds you of that. The purpose of reflection is not to throw a pity party or to send yourself on a guilt trip, but to learn from your difficulties and move on from them.

It feels good to know how wise, strong, and independent you have become.  You will know that by looking back and comparing yourself now to your former self.  You have changed.  You should be proud of yourself.


Look back without the intention of dwelling in the past, but only so you can be reminded of the painful yet rewarding process of change and healing.

Go ahead and take a glimpse of what was, so you can be grateful for what is, and stay hopeful for what will be.

An Incredible Happy Ending


Anonymous Saves A Suicidal Girl


Late last year, 15-year-old Kylie Kylem was feeling suicidal. Because adolescence is a horrible, horrible time, she felt unable to talk to her friends or parents and instead took to Twitter in search of sympathy. Unfortunately, her bullies happened to be online as well, and what followed was an exchange so depressing it’ll make you want to cry.

Instead of acting like human beings for once in their miserable lives, the bullies responded to Kylie’s tweets by encouraging her to kill herself. If you’ve ever been around a depressed person, you know this isn’t a good thing to do. Kylie started tweeting about cutting herself and seemed on the verge of doing something awful when Anonymous and Rustle League, who apparently patrol Twitter looking out for this kind of thing, decided to step in.

What followed was a darkly gratifying exchange that saw Anonymous pull the bullies’ contact details and threaten to identify them to the police, their parents, their principal, and anyone in authority. After a whole lot of groveling, the bullies were eventually let off with a warning—on the condition that they apologize to Kylie. And apologize they did, promising to look after their victim from then on until the end of time. Best of all, the offer was conditional on Kylie directly messaging the Anon guys to tell them she was okay. Rather than take the opportunity for cold, cold revenge, she did exactly that, rising above the level of her bullies and looking awesome in the process.


The Kiss That Stopped A Suicide

One of the worst things about being young is the way passing things seem somehow permanent. So when an unnamed 16-year-old in China faced yet another example of fate raining all over his incredibly poor family, he decided to step out rather than suffer a life of torment and misery. Climbing over the railing of a pedestrian bridge, he prepared to jump. At which point a passing waitress named Liu Wenxiu decided to get involved.

Despite having never seen the kid before, despite knowing nothing of his problems, she followed him to the railing and did the only thing she could: She listened. She listened as this random 16-year-old described the pit his life had fallen into, she listened as he listed the endless problems tearing his family life to bits, and then she simply showed him her wrists. As they stood there, surrounded by cops and gawping pedestrians, Liu told him the story behind her own attempted suicide—quietly, firmly, and without any contrivances. When she was done, she leaned forward, hugged the boy, and gave him a kiss. And the boy suddenly decided that maybe life was worth living after all. All Liu had done was something no one else had ever thought to do: She’d given the kid her full attention and really listened. And that little slice of kindness was all it took to save his life.

Strength in Obedience and Purpose

Strength in Obedience and Purpose


In our lives we face strong and powerful adversaries. Temptations toward materialism, sensuality, substance abuse, peer pressure to act, talk and dress like the other people can be powerful forces that we often feel powerless to resist. While we must always be the one who chooses to obey, we must recognize that our strength comes from purpose in life. When we choose to obey we must see ourselves as surrendering our will and trusting that what is best for our life. We must obey leave the consequences of our obedience to our success.




We often ask, “what if other people laugh at me?” Or, “what if I don’t fit in?” Or even, “how can I be happy without __________?” The real questions we should ask are, “how can I ever resist to quit if I keep giving in to it?” How important is it learned contentment in all situations? “Have I recognized how to be obedient?


Disobedience Leads to Defeat.


Many people wonder why they never grow stronger in their relationships, businesses, on their jobs in spite of the fact that they continually surrender to disobedience. Some think to themselves, “I’ll get my life straight and then I’ll be faithful.” Obedience was the first step. Imagine that a person didn’t know how to read. Recognizing this problem they said to themselves, “I’ll read more books and then I’ll learn how to read.” They will never accomplish the first task (reading more books), if they don’t first accomplish the second task (learning to read). Giving in disobedience weakens us for the life’s battles we face. We will never grow stronger to be able to face these battles if we don’t first obey. Obedience is the foundation of your strength and the key to your success.

 untitled (50)

Obedience Grants Us Strength for the Task at Hand.


We are not asked to understand why we need strength to obey certain things required of us. We are not asked to like these instructions or reasonably recognize the wisdom of obedience, but we are asked to obey.


When we are obedient we gain a measure of strength to face the next battle. Every small victory strengthens us to face the next. This is the way it is intended to work. The only reason it does work is because we stop obeying and then act as if we don’t have the strength.


Sometimes we may grow arrogant. We think our strength gained the victory or we simply forget our purpose and turn to disobedience. Our love of the world or ego may cause us to disobey. Whatever the reason, the problem remains simple, we must obey.


Take the simple steps of obedience and your strength increased along the way.

****J.K. Coltrain****



K. Coltrain was born in Columbus, Ohio. He spent his early childhood days between there and West Virginia where his parents operated a small Mom & Pop grocery store. His Dad also was an excellent auto mechanic and in fact owned a number of repair shops over the years and was a weekend stock car racer. That’s one reason why J. K. is a Nascar fanatic to this day:) J.K. grew up surrounded by music & musicians. His cousin, Buddy Starcher was a professional recording artist on Columbia Records and was a regular performer on the then popular Midwestern & Louisiana Hayrides.

He also introduced the late Keith Whitley who first appeared on Buddys weekly radio show in Charleston, West Virginia when he was 8 years old. J. K. made his own first appearance on radio at age 12 and first TV appearance at age 14. His Uncle & Grandpa performed together at churches throughout the South. That’s where J. K. made his first appearance singing in church at the ripe old age of 11. His first professional job was at age 14 when he began singing with The Pleasant Hill Quartet. A well-known gospel group at the time. Of course in his teens he had to try his hand in high school dance bands like Fire n’ Ice and The Four Aces but by age 20 he had returned to his first love country music. At that time J. K. helped form a 7 piece country rock group called ‘The Southern Express’.

They garnered a great deal of regional success and opened for many popular groups at that time such as Pure Prairie League, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Poco & The Marshall Tucker Band. In 1983 he left The Southern Express to pursue a solo career as his heart was with more traditional country music. He appeared to be taking the music business by storm as he was often the featured artist on Ernest Tubbs Midnight Jamboree and many popular Nashville nightclubs and was dubbed The Star of Tomorrow by Country Music News. He first cracked the country music charts in 1987 with a self-penned song, West Virginia You’re Still My Home on the Studio 7 label.

Since then he had enjoyed a number of chart successes including being shown in the Top 40 in Europe for 41 straight weeks. He also has made many appearances on radio & TV including The Nashville Showcase, The Midnight Jamboree, Nashville On Stage, The Jerry Lewis Telethon & Stars of Tomorrow Show.


J.K. has toured worldwide and worked with some of the greatest names in country music including Jerry Reed, Loretta Lynn, The Bellamy Brothers, Conway Twitty, Buck Owens, George Jones, Tammy Wynette & Jerry Lee Lewis to name just a few.

In addition to still recording and performing on his own J. K. is now helping the new up & coming young artists serving as the President of Colt Records Nashville, Chairman of The Traditional Country Opry and hosting The Country Star Showcases.

He was recently awarded The Texas CMA Entertainer and Best Country Album of The Year awards. J. K. Coltrain is a member of:

Traditional Country Music Hall of Fame
