January 2015:  It is a New Year! What does the ending of one year and the beginning of a new one really signify?  Many of us consider our birthdays as the beginning of another year.

This “January 1, 2015” occasion is really just a calendar year change, an out with the old and in with the new. A time to watch the Rose Bowl Parade, eat black-eyed peas, contemplate gathering documents for the looming ‘filing of income tax forms’, and to make to oneself lots of well meaning promises.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines:

resolution: the act of resolving or determining upon an action, course of action, method, procedure, etc.

resolve: a decision or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.

Did you make any well-meaning promises? Do they come with a lot of resolve? That is the defining factor in achieving success. A resolution comes with true sincerity and a determined commitment.

I know many people who conduct their lives with resolve, and I admire them for that. To keep it manageable, I believe I will pick just one or two items to resolve to achieve this year. One of them will be to give my best in my leadership of our Arkansas State Questers. I hope each of you finds your task or two of which to give your resolve, and I hope one will be to increase your resolve to the Questers.

Historians neglected to educate the public ?
Adults failed to interest younger generations in the past?
No one ever challenged the research of historians ?
