A lot of people must have thought this when they heard or read the announcement of the death of Robin Williams.
Robin’s last act showed to all of us how crucial self-esteem is. None of us have the strength to fight our own battles alone. Those who seemingly do often receive this needed strength from an outside source.
“Why did he choose to die this way?” is a cry we are able to use on a daily basis. With his death in mind it should remind us that any person we come in contact with might benefit from a smile or a friendly word and with this little effort we might encourage others to do likewise. If all of us who are touched with this tragedy would demonstrate an increase of our concern for others, Robin’s last act could have a greater influence for good than any of his exceptionally skillful acting or comedy endeavours.
