It is a tragedy not only in the music but in society. I’m talking about this thing called suicide.
We work ourselves to the bone trying to enjoy this “American Dream”. We try to date, but dating isn’t quite the same as it was back in the 90’s. We try to make everyone happy, but let’s be honest, there’s always someone you can’t impress. And it takes a toll on you.
Unfortunately, suicide happens a lot in American culture. When you get to the point where you mentally can’t stand to see daylight anymore; It’s a shame that people call suicide a “selfish act”.
I feel for everyone including the fans that adored Chester Bennington. Chester was not only extremely talented, but he was in a lot of pain. And you can hear it in the music. I heard it when I first heard “Numb” for the first time on the radio.
I hope everyone sees this as a learning process. Whether they ask for help or not, it’s better to ask are you ok, because sometimes that’s all people need. And sometimes they need a little bit more, and that’s ok too.
