On that note, I encourage you guys to try this, don’t feel nervous about shooting someone a message. If Hiroyuki Suzuki inspired you to be greater, send that guy a message. I can pretty much assure that anyone will appreciate it.
I really want to thank the yoyo community for being legit. One of the most touching moments for me happened back in 09 after I found out from the doctors that I had a brain tumor, it was one of the scariest moments of my life and I felt horrible, but word got out and the yoyo community was really awesome, they sent me messages, sent there get wells and prayers, made threads on the forums telling people to keep me in prayer etc, I was surprised how much the yoyo community really cared, and it made the whole thing easier to go through, and while I still go through all kinda of crazy MRI’s and meds and whatever, its great to see that the yoyo world still is there for me, and I know that they are there for all of you as well.
One incident I did not mention in the video that really was awesome to see, and further reinforces the family aspect of all of us, is back in 2005 when the yoyo world found out that one of the most amazing individuals and tutorial and video makers in the scene, Ryan “Houdini” Monson was dead.
It hit the community hard, Ryan was of that time what someone like Brett Grimes or Kyle Veigh is to us now, and the entire community was really shocked by this. But it was awesome to see the individuals, who took time out, reached out to Houdini’s family, attended his funeral, and to this day, still have that “houdini lives” siggy in their forum signatures.
I see that we all have our differences, and sometimes we may just want to kill each other in a gruesome and heartless way, but like any family, we have our highs and lows, but we can overcome the lows and be close like we should be. And I think thats pretty awesome if you ask me.
So anyways, thought I would post this.
Go out and do it.
Don’t hate, love and tolerate.
