HAPPY 27TH BIRTHDAY, JOSHUA WILLIAM DUN

I can try and put into words what you mean to me but I feel as though it’ll be a lot easier said than done. I remember having some of the darkest thoughts you could imagine, literally just wanting to end it all, but hearing your bands lyrics was one of the few things I could count on to keep me here. I remember some of my friends asking how I cope or how I manage to deal with my demons, and all I could really reply with was “music” because there were certain bands or songs that got me through it all. You guys have been an outlet for me when I felt stuck, insecure, alone, lost, incapable, and most importantly, sad. So thank you for everything that you’ve done for me without even really being aware. I appreciate everything that both you, and Tyler have done over the past few years from your interviews, and speeches with the intent to help others, to your music and lyrics. You’re more amazing than you know and I hope you have the most amazing birthday anyone could possibly have, stillstreet

Last summer when I gave josh a letter i wrote for him, he held the letter just like this and tilted his head like a cute little kitten and said “aw thank you” and that is the moment when my love for Josh Dun intensified. And to think I almost didn’t give josh my letter that day because I was too scared and embarrassed and felt really childish. It honestly took so much for me to do it because I shared a lot with him in there, things I’ve never told anyone. The best thing I ever did was give him that letter. The fact that I know he read it and he replied to me the very next day via a Twitter dm, man. I’m glad I grew some balls in that moment and handed him that letter. Yeah my hands were shaking but it was so worth it. stillstreet
