I am not afraid to keep on living. Why I should be the tour blogger for the Seattle show on September 1st. Blast it to the backrow!
I am not the youngest My Chemical Romance fan that is for sure, but I am still a HUGE fan. I am a single mother and my youngest daughter is also a HUGE fan. She is the one that introduced me to My Chemical Romance about two years ago. When I told her about this contest she said that she would never win. Her self-esteem is so low. My daughter has suffered from depression for three years now and her medication and her counselor are helping her tremendously. In the last year my daughter confided in me that she had made up her mind to commit suicide two years ago. She had a plan and a date for when she would end her life, and then………………her best friend introduced her to MCR’s music. She has told me that their music saved her life. How could I ever repay them (MCR) for keeping my daughter from taking her own life? There is no way that I could, but maybe they will read this post and if they do I want them, (Gerard, Ray, Frank and Mikey) to know that I will be forever grateful for them, their music and how they have inspired and changed so many people’s lives, one of which is my beautiful daughter's life. When My Chemical Romance toured in Seattle in April 2011 we really, really wanted to go. But, being a single mother with three daughters to raise I could not afford to buy the tickets. I know she was sad and disappointed that she couldn’t go, but she understood, even though we both knew that it would be years before they would be touring again. This opportunity would be such a blessing in so many ways. We could see the band in person that saved my daughter’s life. She has told me that the day she gets to see them live will be the “Best day of her Life!”
Two huge My Chemical Romance fans and one extremely grateful mother.
