Director Tony Scott, Robin Williams, Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, Kurt Cobain and I’m sure there are many others… wow. I know it’s kind of crazy, right? What I find sad is that some people out there want to bash people that commit suicide… ya know saying things like: “It’s selfish”, “They’re a coward”, etc. People nowadays don’t have compassion anymore. Some people want to have a neglectful attitude when it comes to people who go suicidal or have committed suicide.
Depression is real and it’s pretty serious. If you know someone who is depressed, you need to get them help ’cause they could end up like those people I listed. Get them to call a suicide hotline or get them to see a psychiatrist or whatever.
I wasn’t a big Linkin Park fan; I never bought any of their albums but I heard pretty much all their hits on the radio over the years so I am familiar with that band. It’s still sad to lose Chester Bennington, though so my heart goes out to his family, friends and the surviving members of Linkin Park.
Suicide is definitely on the rise in the entertainment industry and it’s becoming quite a problem. Why? Is it because of fame & fortune that overwhelmed them? That’s probably a big factor for sure, no doubt. Maybe they’re also having personal problems with their families and all that stuff. There are many different reasons why famous people commit suicide. Sometimes fame & fortune has nothing to do with it. They just had a difficult life growing up and that’s what it is.
Again, I wasn’t a big Linkin Park fan but it’s always sad to lose someone whether in the movie industry or music industry. RIP Chester.
Something’s gotta be done about suicide in America. It’s not just happening in the world of fame; it happens to real people too. I’m sure you’ve lost people due to suicide yourself. It’s happening all over this country. We need to stop suicide in America… it’s gonna be tough but it can be done.
