I know this is considered old news, but to Robin William’s family, it’s probably still as fresh now as the day it happened. I wish them peace and comfort as they cope with his loss.
Robin Williams is one of my favorite actors. As a child, I watched Mrs. Doubtfire all the time. I still watch it when I need a good laugh. And no one could have brought Genie to life in Aladdin like he did. I hope his work will continue to be enjoyed by future generations. He left behind a legacy of laughter, and I look forward to when I can watch Aladdin and Mrs. Doubtfire with my daughter.
I hope his death can also shed some light on suicide and remove the stigma. It shows that anyone can be affected by depression and mental illness, and that it is not a sign of weakness. Even the best of us can fall prey to faulty reasoning and poor decision making, and we need be there to help and support one another.
Farewell, Robin Williams. We all miss you terribly! I hope that you are finally at peace.
