    In Memoriam



    In honor of Robin Williams, I suggest we all make an effort to reach out to someone (or better yet, many someones) and let them know how much they are loved, how much they are needed, how much they are appreciated, how much their continued presence on this planet is desired.


    Depression is insidious and often those who suffer, do so alone under a facade that belies their inner turmoil. Robin's wife rightfully requested that we remember how much happiness he brought to the world, and to not focus on the nature of his death. While I bet we all wish we could bring him the same laughter and happiness he brought us, it's devastatingly too late.


    But it's not too late to pass along that happiness we remember him for to someone else. At a minimum you'll brighten someone's day, and you may just be the one that brings enough light into someone's very dark world to give them hope to go on. So, reach out. Reach out to your friends, your colleagues, your family members, strangers. Reach out to bring random happiness to someone. Reach out often. Reach out right now. #ReachOutForRobin
