Today's Thought

A sign of wisdom and maturity is when you come to terms with the realization that your decisions cause your rewards and consequences. You are responsible for your life, and your ultimate success depends on the choices you make.

Dear Sim,

I looked for an e-mail contact but could find none. So I am inserting my request in this comment field.

Dear Blogger,

You will be aware that there are a number of youth-oriented programs in progress. Many of these are directly aimed at getting the youth to vote. And many of these are getting a lot of visible support from the online and offline communities.

Bangkit, the Youth Outreach initiative of Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia is taking a less direct approach. We believe that youth tend to resist directives, simply because they have had it for most of their lives. Therefore, instead of telling the youth what they must do, we want to ask the youth to tell us what they are thinking about, what are their dreams and aspirations. We believe that, in the process of talking to us, they will engage with us and be primed to catch our underlying message to them - that their future is in their hands.

The Bangkit project talks to the youth in their favourite language - music. By keeping language/dialect and genre open, we are providing a channel for youth from all walks of life. The more talented can speak out to us through their music. Those less talented can tell us what they feel through the songs that they vote for. And, at the end of the day, we will have a Compilation CD that belongs to the Youth of Malaysia and continues to carry their message.

We need you to carry this message to the youth of Malaysia. Tell them about Bangkit.

Don't just publish a single article and expect them to remember Bangkit. That will only get us a spike in visits and then things will die out. If you truly support our initiative, then place a prominent link in your sidebar for the duration of the competition. We need people to keep coming back to catch updates and vote for incoming songs.

Song entries will be received until midnight of 15th May 2010.
Voting will remain open until midnight of 31st May 2010.

Please help us to awaken our youth and urge them to arise. Jom Bangkit.
