This is Heavy Rotation, a weekly celebration of the music that brings us together. Truthfully, this isn't the episode I planned to record but hearing that Etika lost his battle to mental illness shook me and most of my small circle online to its core. As I've done so many times while battling my own struggles with anxiety, depression, and a lack of a self-confidence, I turned to music to get me through what was a tough day for so many online. Yes, there's still the normal blend of new music here but more importantly, I hope this mix can provide some healing to you listening as it did for me while putting it together.

If there's one thing we can learn from this tragedy, it's that we need to all be better to ourselves and to each other. If you're ever struggling, know that there's always a Saving Light in the world for you either with someone you trust or through the many hotlines available. Please seek out help if you feel that you need it. You are loved and important.

Along with providing a lengthy list of hotlines that you might find useful, the Buddy Project does an incredible job of pairing people together with a buddy based on common interests. I'd highly recommend checking it out: http://buddy-project.org/hotlines
