It's nice how immediate the community came together. I honestly felt alone in my grieving at first. Thought I was rather silly or childish for crying so hard over the loss of an idol. But really, he was more than that. Three different friends, who I lost touch with over the years, all messaged me to check how I was doing. They're not avid Linkin Park fans by any means, they knew their top hits, but nothing more than that. They all wanted to see how I was holding up. I felt rather comforted by that.
