昨天台灣深夜時間,聯合公園團員們在粉專上貼出一則緬懷查斯特(Chester Bennington)的文字,簡單的三段文字,最後寫著「我們愛你,我們好想你」,讓一票歌迷哭慘。妞編輯為各位翻譯了全文如下:

 

 

Dear Chester,

親愛的查斯特 

 

Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

我們的心都碎了。面對這突如其來的衝擊,讓我們至今仍然無所適從。

 

 

 

 

 

You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

 

你曾經碰觸到多少脆弱的心靈,或許比你想像得還多。你走後這幾天,我們從全世界,無論公眾或私底下的關心,都看到大家對你真心地愛護與最大的支持。Talinda(查斯特的太太)和你的家人都很感恩,她希望大家知道,你是最棒的丈夫、兒子與父親。不過,這個家少了你,再也不會完整。

 

 

 

 

 

Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.

 

這幾年跟你促膝長談,總是一起討論未來的熱情。你缺席之後的空位,永遠沒人能填滿。那個喧嘩的你、風趣的你、充滿野心的你、富創造力的你、仁慈慷慨的你,已經不在我們身邊。我們很努力去接受,是惡魔將你從我們身邊帶走這個事實。但說到底,你曾將這些惡魔譜寫成歌,也成為歌迷的救贖,是大家在一開始就愛上你的原因。你勇敢將心魔展露給世人,將我們牽引起來,並且教導我們學習如何在人世間修行。你擁有一顆最寬容的心,並且不怕跟眾人分享。

 

 

 

 

Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.

Until we see you again,
LP

 

我們對表演的熱愛,永遠不會熄滅。當不知未來的道路怎麼走時,會想起你曾帶給我們的一切,因為認識你,讓我們變得更好的人。謝謝你,我們愛你,也真的好想你,另一個世界再見。

 

 

 

 

看完,是不是哭翻了(崩潰大哭一場)!關於文中「惡魔」,可能指得是查斯特自己的心魔,更可能是過去曾傷害過查斯特的人。因為查斯特自七歲開始,曾遭受成年男子長達六年的性侵,讓他一直有著輕生念頭。

 

 

 

 

最後,昨天法醫驗屍報告出爐,查斯特確定為自殺。此外,下週起在北美的聯合公園巡演也全面取消。而聯合公園團員不只發文悼念,更成立了「#RIPCHESTER

網站,希望大家幫助身邊可能有自殺傾向的人。

 

 

 

妞新聞提醒您:

關懷生命、尊重生命,人生沒有解決不了的事-拒絕自殺。
