Robin Williams made me laugh. Robin Williams made me cry.

I don’t think I’ve ever cried when a celebrity died before. That was until Monday when I heard the news of Robin Williams’ passing while I was in New York City for Affiliate Summit. Man, he made some great movies (some even yet to be released). I choked back tears first when talking with Hunter Boyle about my own family’s battles with depression and then again talking with Missy Ward, who absolutely adored Robin Williams.

People don’t “commit” suicide. People die by suicide. I loved this graphic that Rae Hoffman shared entitled “If physical diseases were treated like mental illness” because many people don’t realize just how real and awful depression really is.

And I smiled when I saw Janet Thaeler’s Facebook update, “Has Robin Williams’ death turned us all into armchair psychiatrists?” Now I’m not going to get all preachy on you. I’m just going to share some good reads written after the tragic event:

Rest in Peace Robin Williams.
