Robin Williams

I don't typically mourn celebrity deaths on a personal level. Usually I find it sad in a general way, and feel bad for the family, but I never feel like I lost someone I know, and I definitely don't post about it. Robin Williams's death has hit me hard though. My mom sent me a text right before dinner asking if I had heard what happened to Robin Williams. I didn't respond till after dinner because I knew it would be bad news, and I wanted to put off hearing it. After dinner I read her text telling me he'd committed suicide, and then I Googled it to confirm. The fact that he's gone is sad, but now knowing he had so much sadness and pain is really heartbreaking. I, along with many, many people grew up with his movies. He brought so much laughter  and happiness into the world, and I pray that he has peace now in death that he didn't have in life.
