The gift and curse of suffering


The suffering in mental illness is a curse to those afflicted, but sometimes through their suffering, they give us the most beautiful gifts. Their art is the release of their pain, the relief from their pain, but in the end some of the most brilliant artists are undone. The relief is temporary, the struggle is ever present, the illness overwhelms. Thank you, Chester, for your gift. You made the world a better, more beautiful place. I will continue to appreciate Linkin Park’s music, it is a treasure.
