One Small Dream

Some of you may be familiar with this video, and others of you may have never even heard of it. If you haven’t seen it I’d like to encourage you to take the time to watch it. I promise it’ll warm your heart. Warning: grab some tissues because it’s been known to make grown men cry.

In the ten minutes it took for me to watch this video I learned so much, and I was incredibly inspired. Like with anything else, there are times that I get discouraged. There are times where I worry that my work with TBYT isn’t effective and maybe I’m just wasting everyone’s time with this dream, but God always sends something like this to keep me on track. It’s amazing how one little boy’s dream has had such an impact on the world.

We would like to make something clear, we’re not just here to fight cyberbullying or to simply make people feel better about themselves. We’re here for more than that. We want you to understand that you have been given an incredible outlet and tool called “the internet” and when you use it in the right way amazing things can happen. This video is proof. One small idea, or a little dream can turn into a wonderful reality larger than life if you persevere and just keep on dreaming. Don’t let anyone tell you that what you want is impossible. Prove them wrong and show them that nothing is impossible. It doesn’t matter if your dream is an arcade, a campaign ,or to sell out arenas. Don’t ever give up. You never know what can happen.

Little Things

One Direction has released a new album and one of their songs “Little Things” is raising a lot of controversy. Some people think that it’s cute and it makes the popular boy band even more lovable but others think that it points out a girl’s flaws too much. What do you think? Does this song help build self esteem? Or tear it down? Sound off in the comment section below!

Apology

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well.

I would like to apologize for a lack of posts on here. I’ve really let life get in the way and that’s no excuse. Over the past couple months I’ve been trying to get acclimated to college life but now the semester is almost over and I have two breaks coming up I’ve decided it’s time to get back into this cause full force.

I also must admit that a lack on interest has kept me from pursuing things and posting more often but I refuse to let that get in the way. It’s not about the numbers, but the individuals. I’m sorry I didn’t embrace that mindset sooner.

I hope you won’t hold our lack of activity against us. I assure you, the best is yet to come.

Our Mission

Words are powerful things. Sadly, there are times when people forget how much power they truly posses. When people misuse words they run the risk of deeply hurting others. Cyberbullying can be just that, a misuse of words that ends up hurting people. Currently the issue of cyberbullying is a hot topic around the world. For some reason sitting in front of a computer makes people feel powerful and they use that power to hurt others. The popularity of social media is a major part of this issue. We , L and V, decided to use social media for good by creating “Think Before You Type”.  Our goal is not only to help stop cyberbullying but also to help people build positive self images by using encouraging words. Lately, the emphasis has been on how bad people can make others feel but we want to also focus on how easy it is to make others feel good with kind words. We hope that you will join us in the fight against cyberbullying and our fight for positive self images. People need to remember that they can use words for good as well as evil and we want them to simply, think before they type.
