In my opinion, there is nothing better than the joy of making people laugh. It sounds corny, but it’s true. It’s part of the reason why I started this blog, and writing all of the time has taught me I truly love using sarcasm to poke fun at Hollywood and TV.
Robin Williams was one of the all time greats. His comedic timing, imagination and pure talent made him light up every screen, and he brought pure joy to the world. He also knew how to be serious, and his more dramatic roles are just as amazing as his comedic ones. At the end of the day, it’s important to remember you never know what is going on in someone else’s mind or in someone else’s life. Sometimes the people you think are the happiest, like Robin, are the ones who are suffering the most. We can learn so many different things from Mr. Williams, and I think the greatest is that it’s important to take action and get help for your addictions or demons. Never be afraid to ask for help, and never be the person who denies someone the help he/she needs.
