So many blogs about Robin Williams today. So many heartfelt sentiments. So much discussion about suicide and depression and speaking out about our emotions. So much, that I don’t feel like I have much to offer as a unique perspective, but somehow I feel want to say something, to mark this strange day.
To say thank you to a man who spoke to me as a young person in Dead Poet’s Society and Good Will Hunting. Who brought me those stories at a time when they were just what I needed to hear.
A man, who it appears was wracked with internal conflict I know nothing about. It seems to me, that might be just how it is when people are fighting their own internal battles. When they try to explain, it just sounds like gibberish.
I hope that one day soon, that won’t be the case.
