Farewell


It seems too heavy not to say anything about the passing of Robin Williams. The funniest ones often feel the most deeply. I sincerely hope his tragic death truly sparks conversations about mental health. It is so, so important that these discussions begin so people who are going through mental health issues have the knowledge and the courage to act upon and take advantage of the resources available to them to begin the healing process. Most of us have experiences with mental illness in some capacity so why this conversation is still happening behind closed doors or in hushed tones, is beyond me. We all need to become champions of this cause as we do so many other causes in this country. 

Of all the outpouring on social media, this is the most poignant (also noted on the Today show). Rest in peace, funny soul.
