Masked Comedy: Robin Williams- Never Forgotten.

Robin

Today I learned that one of my most beloved actors is dead. Mr. Robin Williams was the man that always had a smile to offer the world, a joke to make the world feel acceptance, and the surreal vision that happiness is always around the corner.

He died today.

He died of apparent suicide.

Alone.

Isn’t it ironic that this man, touched so many hearts, made so many people smile and laugh, while he grieved in silence.

Alone?

Such a sad and shocking revelation to know that the facade that we see is not always what is inside.

Susan Schneider, the actor’s wife, released the following statement to the New York Times’ Dave Itzkoff:

“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one if its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”

R.I.P To a wonderful man – may all the happiness and laughter in the world shower you with love.

  • When I first saw this, I thought it had to be one of those internet hoaxes. Sadly it was not and it just shows how devastating a disease depression can be. It can affect anyone in any walk of life. I am so sad over this loss.

  • Can we use your forum to talk about mental illness and the impact it may have on a child when they learn someone they love took their own life? We can no longer be ashamed or hide the truth! We must advocate for not only people who have a mental illness but those around them who just can’t understand. Let’s use our beloved Robin Williams’ death as a stepping stone towards understanding the impact of mental illness.

  • Absolutely Alayne, the topic is one that is highly sensitive yet non longer shameful and the more we talk, the more options our children may realize they have in life.
