Linkin Park originally wrote the song One More Light with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone.

Directed by Mark Fiore band member John Hahn, the video shows footage of Bennington's most recent stadium performances, the band's humanitarian efforts, and other behind the scenes shenanigans while on tour.

What a strong teen.

Draven Bennington, the son of deceased Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, has released three videos for National Suicide Prevention Week.

This project comes less than two months after Chester's shocking suicide.

The 15-year-old is clearly trying to make a difference as he appears solo in the first vid, sits down with his mother, the rocker's first wife Samantha, in the second, and discusses suicide warning signs with local therapist Angelica Guajardo in the third. As this can't be an easy topic for Draven to discuss, we couldn't be prouder of the teen for lending his voice to such an important cause.

In the introductory clip, Chester's hit Numb is heard playing in the background as his son states:

Chester Bennington's Family Is Starting A Suicide Awareness Organization To Prevent Fans From Killing Themselves In Honor Of The Singer

Filed under: Sad SadMental Health

no title

Chester Bennington was an inspiration to many — but his suicide won't be.

The Linkin Park singer's family is planning on starting a suicide awareness organization in hopes of preventing the rocker's fans from suffering the same fate as the late musician.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ the Benningtons are worried that fans might want to follow in the footsteps of Chester and fellow rock legend Chris Cornell — who hanged himself in May — by killing themselves.

Aside from wanting to glorify or honor the rockers' deaths, the family is concerned that people will now see suicide as an easy way out — so they're doing all they can to prevent an onslaught of tragedies.

The family feels that Chester's fatal factor was being alone, so they plan on stressing the importance of surrounding yourself with loved ones.

The organization is still in the early stages, but the family is set on providing resources to those in danger and being a voice in the growing conversation of suicide awareness.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Samantha calls out specific events such as the fact they weren't allowed to speak, and that there was only one photo of Draven anywhere, and that none of his family was mentioned anywhere in the programs (which she says looked like "a cheap happy hour menu."

She also says she and her guests were purposely not included in an "after bowling celebration" following the service.

According to Samantha, organizers had no interest in honoring all of Chester's life, only the "12 years" they were a part of. And she has some harsh words for the unnamed persons responsible:
