Transcript of Austin Carlile
Austin also uses Aspire and Create as a way to do charity work, setting up food drives, and donations to many foundations. Austin Carlile quotes Make your own footprints, make your own memories. Be yourself because that's something no one can ever take away from you. It gets better. It always gets better. Life will never put you through more than you can handle. Wake up and create a purpose for yourself. Don't ask the meaning of life, ask yourself the meaning of each given day. It gets better, always. Always. Every day and month and year is a page or chapter. Get to the end of your book. Don't end it too soon. (about depression/suicide) Be your own person because no one can take that away from you. No one is ever going to be you. Evan Somewhere in America is a guy called Evan. In Austin Carlile’s phone he’s down as Evan Help because about six months ago, he contacted the Of Mice & Men frontman on twitter at his lowest point - beaten by his father and kicked out of home, he had no one else to turn to. AUstin responded and gave Evan his phone number just so he had someone to talk to. Over the next few weeks Austin helped find Evan a job and get back on his feet.
“I even helped him get health insurance, and I don’t even have health insurance. He texted me the other day to say he got a raise and... and he’s so proud.” Sitting in the back lounge of his band’s bus in California. Austin’s voice is cracking. “This right there is why I do it. I don’t care what anybody out there says about me, because it makes my day when Evan Help pops up on my phone. That’s why I want to exist,” This last sentence is gulped through a haze of tears as the vocalist draws his knees up to his chin and does his best to avoid eye contact. If you have enough strength to help yourself, you have the strength to help those in need. Never pass up an opportunity.
