Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington Dead at 41

This is heartbreaking…

It has barely been 2 months since we learned of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell’s death (Chris Cornell would have been 53 today). Now we have to look at this, another person who has brought amazing art into our lives only to make the decision to take his own. Chester Bennington of Linkin Park is dead at 41 as TMZ and now, many other news outlets are reporting.

He leaves behind six children from two wives. He suffered substance abuse issues and was abused when he was younger, according to reports.

We learned this week that suicide is the leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 17 in Utah. This has got to stop. Suicide is not the way out. There’s ALWAYS something to live for.

The Utah Chapter of Suicide Prevention can help and will help. If you need help, if someone know needs help, reach out!
