I thought I got that right. I have the news on when I can, I was never a fan, but caught it in passing while paying attention to my on line posting.

But, it brings up a very important point that far too many in America sweep under the rug. Mental illness is NOT a class issue relegated to the poor.

This guy had far more than I do. But I know exactly how it feels to get to the point of wanting to call it quits. As far as I know health wise, I am fine. But that is far different than your brain. I hate that far too many think no broken bones means you can tough it up.

His fans will certainly miss him. But I can also tell you fearing judgment and self blame even when you know you haven't done anything wrong can be as crippling as a broken limb.

Kurt Cobane had everything too. Stuff like this makes me angry that anyone would piss on the poor or say "buck it up".

RE: RIP Chris Cornell
Chris Cornells wife has released a statement:

Quote:My Sweet Christopher,

You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through.

You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn't be alive if it were not for me. My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I'm sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I'm sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.

I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.

I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will.

Always and forever,

Your Vicky.
