RIP Robin Williams

Postby Pepper » Mon Aug 11, 2014 7:47 pm

I am so sad about this. Celebrity deaths don't usually affect me like this one has.

I haven't stopped crying since I heard the news. :-\ It's like a family member died.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

Its sad he is dead.

But here is what i dont get. Today he gets celebrates in medias all over for being such a special person.

Truth was in the end he did the most egotistical thing a person ever could do, kill himself and leave his family behind. On top of that it was no secret he was both addicted to drugs and alcohol several times during his career. So yes such a great person to celebrate. Next thing we start celebrating Putin.

I think it's the fact that someone who was so beloved, so adored by so many people, who brought so much laughter and joy to so many, could still not escape his own inner demons is what upsets many people.

I also don't think that struggling with addiction or depression puts him anywhere near the likes of someone like Putin, and that was an incredibly shitty comment to say about someone who just died, Ice.

Yes he had his demons but we all must remember that Depression is a disease that can be fatal. At the diseases height, your thoughts become skewed and you don't see the world the way people not afflicted with the disease see it.

But here is a perfect example of the type of person Robin Williams was:

Robin Williams' secret act of kindness for a dying fan http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1161124

He went to see this girl in secret and on his own dime - spent hours with her just to make her happy.

Yes, my friend, I publicly scolding you for your words, LOL. So I hope you don't get too angry. :hiding: :)

he should probably have used that kindness and applied it to his own family, instead of a random one.

Well all I can say is if you haven't ever suffered from the disease, it's really hard for one to see life through their eyes.
