I've never been much to react to a celebrity passing, but in this case my feelings are entirely different. I remember watching movies like Hook, Flubber, and Ms. Doubtfire when I was little. And even watching them as an adult still touches my heart and pulls a tear from my eye. It's a lot for me to say that no other actor has touched my heart and made me laugh and cry in as many movies as Robin Williams did.
I am deeply saddened and devastated to hear of Robin Williams passing. His talent and performance will be missed, but his strength and outlook on life will continue to inspire me. Afterall, life should not be about the sad times, but to laugh and remember the good stuff. If he touched my heart through simply acting and smiling, then surely I can apply his spirit of jovialness and spread laughter and love to others.
RIP Robin Williams. I will miss you.
