Robin Williams has passed due to an apparent suicide. He was brilliant. He was talented – known and loved by people the world. He made that world all the more brighter simply by being in it. I won't beleaguer the point by giving you my spin on my love for Mr. Williams; however, below are some links concerning the man he was and the laughter he brought with him.
My sincerest thoughts & prayers to his family & friends at this horrible, horrible, time. There are only so many lights in the world and his will be sorely missed. Godspeed, Sir.
Now – and this is important – if you are sad, if you are depressed, and you feel you’ve lost your way to the point that you feel the world would be fine without you? PLEASE think again. You are not and do not have to be alone. Find someone to talk to that you can trust, perhaps someone at your local church or synagogue, or you can talk about how you are feeling right here: there is this: http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/. As it says on their site, “No matter what problems you are dealing with, we want to help you find a reason to keep living. By calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7.” Please, find someone to talk to.
The world needs your light.
