Shakespeare once said that eyes are the windows to the soul. I think that the same can be said for music. All of the beautiful musicians and poets we have lost from drugs and mental health issues all told powerful stories through their words. Layne Staley, Kurt Cobain, Chester Bennington, Chris Cornell, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin. It is a never ending list of heart breaking tragedies that wont seem to end.
They tell not only their personal stories, but the stories of millions of others that are struggling with the very same problems. Their stories are all sadly similar and more and more lives will continue to be lost for the very same reasons if we don´t step in and put an end to it.
These beautiful souls have stories to be told that can help heal others.
These artists give us answers on how to help stop the epidemic of drugs and suicide that is destroying our youth. By learning their stories we can help prevent others from going down that same path.
Music allows you to inside a persons soul. You can feel their pain and learn about their desires. It is also a powerful form of therapy. Its time we start to use it to heal our broken nation.
