I know that the whole world is talking about it. I know that some people are probably already sick of hearing it. But this news is devastating. A man that we grew up laughing with. A man that made the worst things seem amazing. A great actor who was probably just as nice in real life as the characters he played in movies. The world has lost a great man and we are all feeling the sting from it.
I can tell you right now, my news feed on Facebook is littered with pictures of Robin Williams. He played in so many movies that helped us through childhood or even in our adult lives when we forgot how to laugh. Of course I am going to pay homage to this great man on my blog.
Here are a few things that I thought about when I found out of his death. (in list form because you know I love making lists)
- Who is going to put chattering teeth in his casket? (In reference to Toys.)
- I am going to create a rescue team to go save Robin Williams from hell. (In reference to his movie “What Dreams May Come.”)
- Peter Pan has gone to Never Never Land forever. I’m sure the lost boys will be thrilled to have their Pan back.
- Genie is finally free. (I admit this one came after all the images on Facebook.)
- Mork has gone home.
It’s so sad to think that someone who gave laughter to so many others, became so depressed that he took his own life. I wish that someone could have been there for him. I wish that someone could have told him how wonderful he was. I wish we could have all told him how much he meant to us.
With great sadness, I say goodbye to one of the funniest men to ever entertain us. Farewell, Robin Williams. It was great while it lasted.
