It’s been almost 2 years since we’ve bought WYBM to y’all through a YouTube medium, in the form of a catchy single and an accompanying video that everyone loved. Ha! We appreciate the love and support that you show us, regardless in the way you choose to display it. Almost 2 whole years and we’re still going at this strong, but on the other foot it’s still 2 years later and we aren’t satisfied with where we are right now… how far we have to go is still to be determined. In two years we’ve put almost 10,000 dollars into our efforts, almost totaling how much I had made in a year, working at my previous part time gig. But every dollar put in has been worth it, we’ve met many people along this journey who have been instrumental in shaping us to the people we are today and for that fact alone makes this all worth it. As cliche as this sounds… Ah, never mind I won’t say it, but you get the drift (Just think money, friendship and this sentimental message of this note and it’ll all be clear to you, I promise). The message of this point being, if the world really does end at the writing of this post (Today is December 21st, 2012) what have you lived for? What will be said about you at your eventual death? It is with that thought in mind that we will continue to push forward and impose the WYBM mentality in our community. With all things being equal life as we know it is the state of being conscious, with consciousness bearing relevancy and so on. In other words, this means that at the time of death, everything that you’ve ever lived for will be reduced to a memory. How well that memory is received depends on the work that you do now. Studies have shown that the greatest fear most people have is the fear of being ostracized, or standing out. You have probably experienced this when you’ve had the right answer, but have not raised your hand for fear of saying the wrong answer. Or maybe it was a bad haircut or a really nasty pimple, chances are we’ve all experienced this fear at some point in our lives, but the important thing is that we look to make a positive contribution in our communities. Our lives after death depends on it. Around WYBM, we have a quote that we live by, “You don’t have to be a Saint to do Good” meaning that regardless of what you like to do on your free time, or whether or not you’ve supported your schools canned food drive or worse yet, forgot to recycle last week, we ALL have the ability to effect POSITIVE change in our communities. This means in our schools, our homes, at work and in even on our social media networks. So should the world end today, I have but one challenge for you, and that is to make your life after death a lasting one. Do something positive for someone, it could be something as little as helping someone carry their groceries to the car, spending 30 minutes with a struggling student to help them understand the quadratic formulas or even offering to babysit your siblings so your parents can enjoy a night-out, will prove significant. In the coming weeks, hopefully you will learn more about what WYBM stands for and get involved. Until then, you’ve got work to do, make your memory a worthwhile one.
“You don’t have to be a saint to do GOOD”. #WYBM
