Once I heard In the End on the radio, I scrounged together my allowance money to buy this C.D. I then commenced getting up an extra hour so that I could walk to school and listen to my C.D. Walkman each morning during the trip. One day I was near the school and it slowly but surely started breaking down pouring, right in the middle of In the End.. right before the part toward the end where Chester's most beautiful voice comes out, "I put my trust.. in you.. pushed as far as I can go.. for all this, there's only one thing you should know.." If it weren't for the rain, you'd've probably seen me cry. lol I was 14.
After that personal experience.. Linkin Park were just my heroes, to be able to bring out such emotion in me when nothing else did.
