RIP Robin Williams
Yesterday, the world stopped laughing.
Checking my Twitter feed last night around 7:30 p.m., The Hollywood Reporter headline read, “Breaking: Robin Williams dies of suspected suicide.” Learning this shocking news for the first time was a moment of pure disbelief. How? Why? Tragically, the only answer that could be given was that it happened. While his personal struggles were not a tightly-kept secret, it doesn’t make this situation any easier. From his elaborate stand-up to wild and hilarious improvising on late night television to his family-oriented classics to his more serious roles in an academic setting to his relentless creative energy, Robin Williams was an icon and a fan favorite of people from multiple generations.
He was one-of-a-kind.
His talent helped define stand-up comedy, improvisation and molded countless childhoods. The following video clip is certainly not enough to fully remember Robin Williams, but it’s a start.
Rest in Peace Robin Williams.
