KingCast presents: Each one teach one, the Education Coalition rides again!

Nearly twenty (20) years ago I sat down with several other law students and created the Education Coalition. It has been quite a journey since then, but now at this point in my life I get the opportunity to mentor a certain high school kid who also has the chance to make a difference in this World. Whip smart this kid is, but of course I hear he has some problems dealing with the establishment, he-heh. I would know nothing about that :)

Meanwhile, I get to be on the Board of Directors for a certain local nonprofit group that has been making a difference in their community since 2001. We're hooking up with Nonviolentpeaceforce.

You see, you can't keep a good man down. Sometimes you can murder him like what Gregory Floyd (now at least in prison thank goodness) did to Liko Kenney in my opinion, but short of that, a good man will always rise back to the top of his game, and keep on making a difference in this World.

That is the biggest lesson of all.

And exactly how did this mentoring opportunity come about?

The young man is the son of someone who is featured, along with yours truly, in a regional magazine geared toward ethnic professionals; last night was the photography session for the cover page.

The format is clean, the content interesting and the publisher and editor-in-chief are just flat wonderful people to know and to work with, as is everyone else I've met involved in this project.

It will launch in approximately 3 weeks.
