Robin Williams' suicide last night. It was the kind of knot-in-your-stomach feeling that's both unfathomable and hyper real at the same time. We lost such an amazingly brilliant and gentle soul to such a dark disease. I'll be writing more in-depth posts about depression and suicide in the coming days, but I didn't want to let today slip by without acknowledging everything Williams was to a whole generation. You need only scroll through Twitter to see his impact. He was a teacher. He taught us about Neverland. He granted wishes. He was a loving housekeeper. He was a devoted father. He was an unconventional doctor.
