My family and I deeply grieve Robin Williams’ death. We are such enormous fans that we even took our then 2nd grade son to Robin’s solo show at the Chicago Theatre – which, of course, was full of f-bombs and other inappropriate content. My son even spoke of it today on his blog.
Robin spotted our cute tow head in the audience and launched into a rant – “What kind of mother would bring you here?” I tried to crawl under my seat.
Robin’s death proves that our society needs to open up and double down on depression. It’s a horrific disease. And it hits too many homes in our home towns.
