Symphonic Saturday – RIP Chester Bennington


rest-in-peaceI can’t begin to express how sad I am about the loss of Chester Bennington. Music helped me tremendously when I was going through my divorce and Numb was one of the songs that resonated with me the most.

I listened to it and sobbed. I listened to other songs and sobbed some more.

All I can hope is that he and Chris Cornell are up in heaven together giving everyone a great rock show.

We need to do something to stop this suicide epidemic. Suicide rates among men are higher than women around the world in most countries despite women being more susceptible to depression. We need to find out why. Are they Vitamin D deficient? Have they all suffered as much as Chester did as a child?

Bennington was a tortured soul much like Robin Williams. Yeah, I’m not over that one yet either. What happened to Bennington as a child, there’s no excuse for. I wonder if Chester could’ve gotten the help he needed if Chris hadn’t killed himself.

Linkin Park’s performance on Jimmy Kimmel says more than I can.

I care too.
