Once again we share in the sadness of losing one of our most beloved entertainers, Robin Williams. He was someone I grew up seeing on television and in the movies. He seemed real, kind and so very funny. Many were shocked to learn that he had taken his life after struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues for many years. I mean, how can someone so talented be so troubled? How does someone who spent years making us laugh, cry, think and feel be someone who we could not collectively save with our appreciation and adoration?
