Today, I learned that actor and comedian Robin Williams died by apparent suicide. It may seem odd that I am posting something about his death but there are those celeberties that impact you in unexpected ways. I adored the late Maya Angelou and have posted about the late President Nelson Mandela when he was living. But today hearing that someone whom, I have followed since the early 1970’s took their own life just knocked the wind out me.
A friend posted on Facebook that clinical depression can be as deadly as cancer. I have seen this to be true in Hollywood and with every day regular people. This past weekend, I had a long discussion with someone who fights every day with mental illness. I pray that Robin Williams is now at peace. I also pray for the healing of his family and friends. It is truly a sad day indeed.
Finally to all those who suffer with depression or any mental illness I pray you peace of mind and heart.
