A Final Thank You and Good Luck

I'm sitting here at work watching the clock tick closer to 3 in the afternoon, and in the silence of the Center, I turn on the only band I know can truly liven this place up for a party of one: My Chemical Romance. And as I think about the news of their break up, I remember all the things they have done for me. No, they didn't save my life like they have for so many, but they got me through my grandmother's fight with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease that ultimately took her life a year ago this coming Monday. They helped me through the funeral. And this past fall, MCR was there through every tantrum and curse I placed on my college thesis. They stayed up with me while I beat my brains out trying to analyze Thomas Hardy. I was a different person somewhat when I found them a few summers ago, but now, I think I'm a bit stronger. I've learned that I am who I am and people are stuck with it whether they like it or not. They have inspired me to fight for my dreams, the only thing stopping me is me. And I thank them for that, for being who they are and creating such amazing music. They are the only band that has ever, forgive the cliche, swept me off my feet with thier sound and thier lyrics.Their music will always be a apart of me, no matter what. Thank you.
Good luck to Frank, Ray, Gerard, and Mickey, wherever life may take them all now.
And, I will sign this with my real name, not my screen name, as this is probably my last post.
Thank you, My Chemical Romance.
