Dear Chester...

Dear Chester,
Your hurt won’t last forever. The feeling you have at this moment will pass and the voices you hear will soon fade. Your wife will see you, smile and know that she has an amazing husband to stand beside her. Your children will come with their arms wide open, ready to embrace the love of their father. Your voice has impacted millions and will most likely continue to for decades to come. Your fans are encouraged by your voice and look forward to seeing you every time you come to their city and line up for hours and sometimes days to get in to hear your band play. Every time you release a song or an album, millions gather around their devices, eager to listen and embrace what you have created… You are loved beyond words. You were made by a beautiful God and given a gift and a message of encouragement that no one else can duplicate… You’re a light in a dark world. Don’t let depression define you. Jesus defeats all depressions.. Just know that you are loved.

Chester Bennington may be gone but he will never be forgotten. Last year we lost a legend and this is what I would have said if I had the chance... obviously, it’s late but I am posting it for anyone struggling and as an outlet to remind us to take mental health seriously and LOVE people no matter what state of life they are in... whether they look like they have it all together or are visibly struggling... love them. You might just save their life. 
Struggling? Reach out to myself or one of the amazing people or organizations I’ve tagged in the picture above or call 1-800-273-8255 for immediate help. #MentalHealth #SuicidePrevention
