“I Tried So Hard and Got So Far But In The End It Doesn’t Even Matter” – it matters to a lot of people, and it always did! You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized.
There are some days when you wake up to tragedies that throw you off. When certain situations and events find the power to change the whole meaning of your life in a blink of an eye and Chester Bennington’s sudden demise has been one of them. For the millennials who have grown up on the songs of Linkin Park, battling between the dark and the light, the rights and the wrongs, the news of the suicide of the band’s lead singer Chester Bennington shocks all . It’s a tragic and heavy loss.
Who could have imagined that a Rockstar with hundreds of songs delivering real and visceral emotions could not escape his own demons. Who could have imagined that someone who helped millions and billions of college kids to sail through difficult situations in life through his songs could not find solace in his own words.
“A Thousand Suns got me through a horribly dark time,” Joss Whedon wrote, referencing Linkin Park’s 2010 album.
