    Make your lives extraordinary!

    I am a Robin Williams fan. My two favorite movies of him are Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting.

    I was inspired by his style that I used to tell myself that when I would become a teacher I wanted to be like him—fun loving and cool! I finished education but I didn’t become a teacher but I was inspired to make my life extraordinary.

    A very reliable friend told me that Robin’s second wife Marsha Garces, a philanthropist and a former movie producer, came from my home province Bohol in the Philippines. The same friend told me that Robin and Marsha had visited the town of Ubay (where Marsha came from). At that time, some people were saying they saw Robin Williams.

    When I had given the chance to visit Hollywood, I looked for his star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I liked to have a photo with him but since it didn’t happen, I was just contented of having a photograph with his star.

    The world has lost an immense talent and great voices of Hollywood ...but his fans around the world will continue to honor his memory through laughter.

    “We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for." - John Keating, Dead Poets Society (1989)

    "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary." - John Keating, Dead Poets Society (1989)
