Emo, were told, stands for 'over emotional' or 'emotionally unstable'. Tell me who defines this tag? Possibly people who gave up on having any real emotions years ago. They apply it as a criticism to people who think, who care, who examine their life and want it better, stronger and reach for something that offers inspiration and hope.
Depression and needing something to help lead your progress to something better is nothing to do with age or social background or race or any of those stupid stereotypes that are pushed on us every day.
My Chem speak for a lot of people and have helped so very many, but I doubt that statements like this would sell so many news papers.
If the history is music has taught us anything, it's that some people will always believe that all the ills of the world are caused by whoever is popular at the time. You only have to look at how Elvis, The Beatles or The Rolling Stones were received by some at the time. Apparently, no lessons have been learned.
I hope My Chem know that their music and message has reached and helped so many. They have made a real difference to the people that need it. And long may they continue to do so!
