National Mentoring Day + Month!

Happy National Mentoring Day and Month! Today celebrates mentors who have made a difference in the lives of others, so go out and thank the people who have mentored you!

As part of the celebration, I attended Youth Mentoring day as presented by the Highland Street Corps Ambassadors of Mentoring at the Massachusetts State House. It was a very nice program with lots of appreciation for legislators and big name individuals who have made mentoring a priority in their lives. I thought the keynote speaker's take away point (though morbid) was that on our gravestones, we get three things: our name, the date we were born, and the day we passed. The hyphen in between the dates encompasses everything we've done and accomplished. The important thing is to make our lives mean something by making a difference in the life of as many young people as possible. As the saying goes, "To the world you may be one person, but to one person, you may be the world."
