Laughter is the best medicine,
but it’s also the best disguise.
I was going to write a blog today, but I’m depressed about the death of Robin Williams, and I’m especially sad since he committed suicide. That means he was in great emotional and psychic pain before he died, pain so great that he thought the only way he could escape it was by killing himself. I grieve that Robin was in so much pain. I grieve his loss.
I extend my deepest condolences to Robin’s wife, children, family members, and friends, all of whom must be mourning along with us, his fans. Many of Robin’s movies are trending on The Twitter as people share their favorite memories of him, and connect with each other in their common grief.
I wanted to remember how much he always made me laugh. So here’s Robin’s Biblical History skit.
I know Robin’s making God laugh now.
After Robin’s suicide, Disney released a picture of the Genie from Alladin, hugging Robin Williams, with the words, “You’re free now, Genie,” which I find terribly misleading and horribly insulting. Suicide is not freedom. It is death. If you are thinking of suicide, please, talk to someone.
