RIP Robin Williams

This is the part where I introduce a topic or person to you and tell you how great it/they are.  But the thing is, I cant do that on this occasion.  Last night the world lost a man who managed to change the lives of millions, who inspired people and who made so many laugh continuously.  No, on this occasion I think that pictures speak louder than words because Robin Williams meant something different to us all. 

It really hurt me when I heard he had died.  But what hurt me the most was the fact that we lost such an iconic human being to depression. The world we live in looks down on mental illness and that's just not on. If you are feeling down or have a deep sadness that you cant seem to figure out where it is coming from. If someone tells you that "things will get better in time" or to "snap out of it".  Depression is not that simple. It does kill and I hate that we lost Robin Williams in such a tragic way.  It can strike at any time and take you by surprise so please take mental illnesses seriously and look after your own.  Just like the rest of us, Robin Williams takes a piece of us with him from this earth.  He will never be forgotten.  Every time I read one of his jokes I will most likely shed a tear of happiness But for now I will leave it to himself to end this post on a good note: 

“We had gay burglars the other night.  They broke in and rearranged the furniture.”
