One year ago, the world learned about the death of Robin Williams.
We mourned not just the actor, but the man. We remember how his performances made us laugh, made us cry, made us forget our lives for a short time. We remember the husband, the father, the human being.
Sadly, he is one of many who have taken their own life. Depressions afflicts millions of us, causing the brightest, clearest day to seem dark and overcast.
Robin William’s legacy is more than the characters he played. He is the public face of a disease that has no discernible physical attributes, but holds many in literal chains.
Perhaps we will learn something. Those who are suffering get help and those who know someone who suffers from depression will encourage their loved one to get help.
RIP Robin. You are missed.
