RIP Robin Williams

Posted by on Aug 12, 2014 in Tom's Blog

I was quite saddened yesterday when I saw the first notification that Robin Williams passed, as with most of my news I saw it on Facebook, and to make sure it wasn’t a hoax I had to google it…

Sure enough all of the news agencies were reporting it.

I haven’t taken the time to read how he committed the act, I don’t think it really matters really. The fact that a person who has brought me so much joy over the years, could be so miserable in their own life, that they felt the need to end it, saddens me deeply. I personally am a very positive person, and do not fully comprehend how anyone could be in that dark of a place… Life is the most precious thing we have, and while I may not have much of anything else, I have that…

I have been aware for many year’s that Robin has struggled with depression, his struggle with drugs over the years has always been because of his need to escape. He has also been quoted as stating that performing comedy was his way of seeking attention, and that it while it feels good, in the end it too is empty.

I’m sorry that your fans could not pick you up enough and carry you through the darkness, Robin.

Rest in Peace, you will be missed.
