Wazzup Pilipinas!

Rest in peace, Jamir.

A report from the Quezon City Police District read that Garcia was found lifeless in his home. Cause of death: Suicide by hanging?

From Chester Benington (Linkin Park) 2017

Down to Jamir Garcia (Slapshock) 2020

Two composers and vox who always saves us from depression but can’t even save themselves. They took their own lives.

To be honest, I don't know how I can go on with life.

It ain't funny how people who gave us the energy to keep on going are the ones who doesn't have enough energy to keep on going.

To say that I'm heartbroken is an understatement.

Tough to face reality.

We need to appreciate our musicians now more than ever, especially this time where live music doesn't exist and can't guide our hearts to find the right beat.

Live forever in memories, Jamir.

This line hits differently now: Ako'y di na magbabalik, paalam na sayo!

Rest in paradise, Jamir Garcia of Slapshock

Gone but never forgotten. Magmomosh tayo ulit kung nasan ka man ngayon :( 

Rest in peace, Jamir.

I'm in shock. And even more so their family. Jamir Garcia's sister has a plea. Sana naman pakinggan. 

He has family living abroad. Imagine niyo na lang gaano kasakit mabalitaan yung nangyari habang malayo sila. Tapos yung photos na yun pa ang bubungad sa kanila on social media out of the blue.

Respeto naman. Hindi kailangan pagpiyestahan yung nangyari.

Fuck suicide. Let's all face 2021 strong.

Let's have more stress-relieving activities, conversations with friends, planting or gardening as a hobby, taking care of pets, morning walks and night strolls often. They're not much but it helps.

Hirap kasi magpa checkup sa psychologist o therapist dahil may bayad ehh.. I mean. I know naman na may bayad magpagamot at magpa ospital pero isa pa yan sa problema, may bayad magpa consult.

I know how life can give us countless problems but what I know for sure is that you cant eat that ice cream of your favorite flavor, or sip that coffee in the morning, or appreciate that small tattoo, or laugh when you're already crying with your friends in the afterlife. Keep breathing. There is not enough valid reasons to end our lives. Consult an expert if friends are not around much to understand, or we are too ashamed to reach out.
