Robin Williams: We Lost a Creative Genius
We lost a giant in the comedy and acting world, Robin Williams. As James Lipton of The Actor’s Studio said, “Robin Williams was a true genius. What came to him easily, others had to work hard to achieve.”
Robin Williams, to me, told his fears and made it work for him to create innovative dialogue and made people laugh.
Robin was said to be suffering from depression. Depression is a tricky illness. Most times you can’t see it, unlike a physical ailment. It strikes poor and rich, across all ethnic lines, and can be more destructive than any physical ailment.
Please, please, please, if a friend or loved one says that they are depressed, believe them and get help for them. Pay close attention to the signs. We in the USA, and the rest of the world, need to do a better job providing mental health to those who need it. The following is a link to find out the symptoms of depression:
Robin Williams, thank you for sharing your unique humor with us and may you share your comedy when enter the Pearly Gates.
