He was the poster boy for comedy and tragedy. Though comedy always won out – until yesterday.
He had his struggles and we delighted in his wins. The funny was stronger than any drug or alcohol addiction. The funny kicked ass through heart surgery. What could possibly be strong enough to beat the guy with the best defense – the comedy offense?
A mental disorder that I’ve been told to ‘just get over’.
Did Robin Williams foresee the impact his death would have? Wouldn’t that be ‘ironical’. Can we finally see depression for what it is? A serious disorder that is blind to station; it hurts anyone it touches.
Reach out to the people you love and tell them that you’re hurting. There is no stigma. There is help.
Safe journey Mr. Williams.
