Applause & Praise

I cannot praise Linkin Park more. I began my studies about youth suicide at the University of Minnesota in January 2015, and was working on my field experience for my degree when Chester died. I’ve seen Linkin Park live multiple times over a decade, and I felt the pain. I also looked on as a new generation experienced what my generation did in 1994 with Kurt Cobain, but with trained eyes.

We lost a great man, brother, father, and husband. We came together to support each other through difficult times, and are emerging stronger together, with a voice about the importance of mental health never heard before.

A voice inspired by Chester’s scream. #WeAreLP
