The internet today, in light of the massive nude photo leak.
All of Robin Williams’ greatest roles were about trying to reach people, getting through to them, listening and understanding what they are going through. His best roles were those of the mentor, advisor, listener. Most of his films had the ultimate message that there is no shame in asking for help, and that there is only honor in giving it. Please remember that part of his legacy. Remember that depression is a serious, terrible thing and that no one should have to go through it alone.
Listen to each other, help each other, love each other, goddammit.
RIP Robin Williams! You will be sorely missed!!
Unbelievably heartbreaking to know that his death was likely due to his depression…a man who brought so much happiness and joy to others…gone in an instant. He has always been one of my biggest inspirations in life. A man battling with so much…including Bipolar Disorder…was still able to bring so much warmth and laughter to those around him and to those all over the world.
To be honest, it’s people like Robin Williams that motivate me to keep fighting through my own mental battles. The people who have managed to survive and live to see another day. The people who show that even when life is throwing so much crap your way…there is some good that can come out of it.
What a truly amazing gift it is to be able to make so many people laugh and smile! He will forever be part of my childhood, just like so many other peoples childhoods! Here’s to all the awesome, wonderful, hilarious moments he shared with the world! O Captain! My Captain!!
