    Echo Laugh Turns

    Robin William was a person. A person who at the moment of his life could no longer breath. Breathing is what brought him pain, and to make him stop his pain would mean to him he had to stop breathing. How can we not see that this normal everyday thing we all do breath, brings my friend whom I never meant to his knees? This my dear reader is the purest form of depression. No where special in the world do you have to be to conflicted with this mental illness. When a person opens their eyes and tries to let the world in, they can not understand. It sounds like a self loathing moment. Then the silent ear is turn against them, thus adding more pain and anguish within themselves.
    Depression is a very real thing. If you do not have it, do not assume that the person who is trying to talking about it, is making it up for attention. Mental illness is not a choice. Robin Williams is very honest and forthright in telling the world who he wanted to be, but the depression battle won over his physical life, but his smile and his bright warm blue eyes will always be a part of my heart. My heart will never forget how he taught me as a child to laugh. My dream was to meet Robyn Williams. Now I will meet him in my dreams.
    Good bye for now, may you rest your heavy heart and soul in Jesus lap. He will comfort you and keep you safe from the world that you so deeply wanted to make a happier place. Because of Robyn Williams I learned how to become a giggly foster child. One who never spoke, but when I saw him on Murk and Mindy, he would make me laugh. Thank you Love and always will think of you my friend Robyn Williams.
