Robin Williams, so talented and beloved, has passed away. The reports state that the cause was an “apparent suicide” after suffering from depression. It is always sad when such iconic people leave us, and when they leave this way, particularly, it’s absolutely heart-rending.
My heart breaks all the more as I try to wrap my brain around being unable to spot a ray of light in the midst of the darkness. I know what it is to feel deep despair, and thank God, I know what it is to embrace the light that was there all along. May each of us find that hope that is available so such tragedies as we are hearing about today do not occur.
