In Homage to Robin Williams

I have been debating for the past few hours as to whether or not I should write anything about the passing of Robin Williams.  So I finally decided to come up with this little homage to him.  I feel like what’s already been said about him has been said; about how sad his unexpected death is and the enormous legacy he leaves behind.

I wasn’t an adamant fan of his, but his face and voice have definitely made notable appearances and last impacts in films when I was growing up; from “Hook,” to “Aladdin,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and “Happy Feet.”  He had a distinguishable charm that could capture an audience in an instance, and that is something- amongst many things- that he shall be remembered for.

I leave with you this clip from “Hook,” when the Lost Boys have realized that their original leader has returned to Neverland.

IMPORTANT NOTE: While an autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow, it’s been reported that Robin Williams has died of a successful suicide attempt, following a bound of depression he’s been suffering from recently.  This could have been prevented if he had gotten the right help, which is why I want to say this: If you or someone you know is suffering from depression and contemplating suicide, there are people there who can help.  Don’t ever feel ashamed to ask for help: www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org. 

RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
