Linkin Park- Leave Out All the Rest
Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park since 1996, hung himself in the last few days. He was found today on July 20, 2017. Chester always struggled with drugs and alcohol among other mental issues such as depression and anxiety. But that is not what we remember him for. We remember him for what he shared. He shed his heart in the words he sang. He reimagined what rock could be and he created a new art that captured our souls and helped us grab on and let go and live free and never feel alone. Chester, wherever you are, the world did not deserve you and you did not deserve what the world did to you. We will keep you in our memories. We will hold you in our hearts. The impact you have had on the lives of millions will be your legacy and we will leave out all the rest. Every time I hear an ambulance I say this mantra: to those who lived, to those who died, and to those have been left behind. So this is to those who lived, this is to Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell and Kurt Cobain who have died, and this is to their wives and children and friends and family who have been left behind.

I have been struggling with that as well. People say suicide is selfish but at what point is enough enough? All I know is he struggled for 41 years through childhood abuse and mental disorders and he left his mark on the world more than most men who will die in their 90s.
