A Moment of Silence for Comedienne Robin Williams

106342-robin_williams_617_409I just found out that Robin Williams (1951-2014) died this morning and still shocked by the news! He committed suicide and was only 63 years old. It was known that the comedienne was depressed and had been treated often  — but ultimately it did not work out in his favor. My heart is heavy, because he was one of the best – a comic genius with so much talent.

I grew up with this man and all I can say is that he made me laugh so much. As a writer, I remember him portraying the great professor and rebel in Dead Poet’s Society. It happens to be one of my favorite films of all time. I am a member of Generation X (70’s babies) and just to see so many of the people who I grew up with die in the way that they are leaving us today is sad and disturbing. My condolences go out to his family tonight.

I will end with a quote from one of my good friends tonight: “I’ll tell you something else. Pray for comedians and the funny people in your life. Funny people are some of the most introspective and sensitive beings. They empathize and sympathize and they can SEE things that most people don’t, can’t or won’t. For those reasons, they are usually the MOST troubled souls.”
