To many of us, Robin Williams epitomized the best comedy of our generation.
From the silliness of Mork and Mindy to the quirky but compassionate Genie of Aladdin, the literate leader of the Dead Poets Society, and the genderbending nanny of Mrs. Doubtfire….Robin Williams touched our hearts as well as our funny bones.
Yet beneath that comic genius lurked a dark side. Williams suffered with addiction and depression much of his adult life. Sadly, this week he lost the battle with these diseases. How sad that he wasn’t able to take the light and life he created for others into his own being.
In his honor, we should look back at his body of work and continue to smile and laugh. But we also need to look forward at the work we need to do to help those amongst us who suffer silently with these illnesses.
Rest in peace, Robin.
