The Harsh Reality of it All

I've heard the news, I've cried quite a few tears, I've asked myself that age-old question of why, and I've come to realize that "there's nothing I can say to change that part," the band has come to a close. Of course my heart is hurt, I've been listening to them since I turned 13, they got me through some pretty shitty times and whenever I needed a song to help a situation I'm in, I find that the music that they so brilliantly and lovingly made had always related to me in my time of need. However, life must carry on, we have to keep running, it's our duty as killjoys to keep their music alive even though the band has broken up. I constantly wish I could look Frank and Gerard in the eyes and tell them personally that they were an inspiration to my young life, that they are what I aspired to become in terms of confidence and character, that they made me who I am today, that I wouldn't even be the way I am, in one piece and alive and scar-free, if it weren't for their music, but who knows if that'll ever happen? I can only hope that they reunite, but hope only goes so far. I know there are many of us who have never seen the guys in concert, and I stand among those people wishing I could see them, wishing I could have talked to my personal guitar heroes and role models; I'm just saying that I know what that feels like.
I'm not sure if the site will be taken down or not, so those of you who want to keep contact, here's my email:

I'm always up to talk to anyone.
I end this post with one lyric that has been on my mind lately. I've been listening to Conventional Weapons lately and have found that "The World is Ugly" is my personal favorite from there. The lyric that keeps coming to mind is "Stop your crying, helpless feeling/ Dry your tears and start believing/ There's one thing they'll never take from you."
Killjoys, remember, they can never take the experiences we've had with the band and their music away from us. It'll live on forever in our hearts if we let it.

Hope for the best, fellow Killjoys, one never knows.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, keep the belief and hope and faith and love alive, and keep running, carry on, never let them take you alive.
