Sunday I had a passing in the family, and so part of me figured I should try to find a song that fits the mood of what happens when someone passes and what type of feelings are there. I'm not sure why I thought of this song in particular, but I feel as though it's fitting. As for the music to buy? I would much rather that if you're reading this, you would help donate to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization, which helps to find a cure for breast cancer. My grandmother succumbed to complications from this after fighting it - along with other maladies - for almost six years.
So today's music is brought to you through unfortunate circumstances, but a part of the people closest to you that you lose becomes a part of you after their passing. It's their strength they pass along. So while the song "Hurt" doesn't really describe what this all entails, it does describe what we all feel when we do come to grips with our mortality. I've posted both the original by Nine Inch Nails, as well as the fabulous cover done by Johnny Cash.

And again, to donate to help find a cure, please go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure page! Thank you in advance to anyone that donates!
