    The first song of yours that I heard was "Scars". I didn't know who sang it, but I knew that I was never going to be the same person again. At the time, I was going through a tough time. Someone I deeply care about had become an alcoholic, and would not admit to herself or anyone that she had a problem. I tried so hard to help her, but only ended up getting myself hurt in the process. I kept trying though, doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. I wanted so badly to fix it for her, so emotionally, I took responsibility for her and her situation. It only made things worse, especially for me. At first a girl who only listened to whatever was popular (AKA meaningless, overplayed songs on pop radio stations), I heard "Scars", and the song became my one safe haven - when I felt depressed and had no one to talk to, listening to that song got me through it. I can now proudly say that I only listen to music if I, as an individual, find it meaningful and pleasant to hear. Papa Roach is my number one favorite band, and I don't necessarily believe in a specific higher power, but music is the one thing I have a definite spiritual connection with, especially songs that are not surfacey, but have genuine emotion in them. Every Papa Roach song fits in that category, and I can relate, to some extent, to every song you have written. I can honestly say that "Scars" saved my life. If I didn't have that one thing to turn to, I don't know where I would be today. It made me realize that I was not alone, and that other people had been or were currently facing the same things I was. I knew that if others had gotten through it, I could as well. Thank you, Jacoby Dakota Shaddix, for saving my life. Keep writing music; I look up to you and you inspire me, since I hope to go into the music business as a singer and songwriter at some point in my life. No matter what others think, say, or do, I will never stop appreciating you and being a fan of your music. I have never met you, but through your music, I feel as if I know you on an emotional level, and what I am seeing is a kindhearted, caring, courageous, daring, strong willed individual with a lot of talent. You seem like the type of person I would kick it with, if I ever got the opportunity. If I had the chance to meet any person that had ever lived, you would be my first choice. You are my greatest inspiration, and I really, truly hope to meet you in the near future, or at least sometime before I die. Thank you, once again, for saving my life and making me a changed woman-stronger, wiser, and confident in myself as an individual. 
                                        -A hopeful teen girl who has been there, done that...
    PS: I wrote you a letter that I gave to someone you work with at the Stratton Myers Park Flaming Gorge Days concert in Green River, Wyoming on June 23rd. I really hope it got to you, and if it did, I would love to hear back from you. The letter was in a makeshift envelope made of pink construction paper and lots if tape, and inside it, along with the letter, was a pendant, a drawing, a poem and a song that I wrote, and my contact information. Thanks again!  :)
