The UK has not long been informed of Robin William’s death, and we are grieving hard.
Today I felt okay, I had woken from a decent sleep and arrived at the station on time despite leaving later than normal; I was sat scrolling through IG when I came across some of my American celebrities posting about Williams. I sat there for a moment before rushing onto Facebook to see if anyone I knew was aware of this; the tribute messages had only just began pouring in and it appeared that everyone was just as upset about waking up to this news as I was.
No…this can’t be, Robin Williams dead? But as much as I don’t want to believe it, it’s true. And now I am sat at work writing this tribute post to yet another one of my beloved actors so soon; every time someone asks me if I’m okay, I want to burst into tears and say that this has ruined my entire day. I wrote a tribute post for Rik Mayall less than 2 months ago and he was the first celebrity that I had cried over, now Robin Williams so soon afterwards is the second. I just can’t believe it and I am lost for words that this amazing person is no longer walking our world.
I grew up with his films and loved so many of them; he was forever making people laugh and it is such a shame that he was unable to do that himself, suffering a long battle with severe depression. Although it is currently under investigation, it is thought to be a suspected suicide; he was attending rehab this summer to maintain his sobriety. Apart from his family, no one is really sure why he was depressed; it’s strange to think that someone with such severe depression can have the energy to appear so animated to others whilst acting and making them laugh. I personally know that I wouldn’t have the energy to leave the bed, let alone be animated enough to transform into a completely different person and act amazingly well.
There isn’t much left so say other than I miss him terribly and so does the rest of the world; people are mourning all across the world for this wonderful and amazing actor and comedian. He was brilliant and spot on in everything he played; he will never be forgotten and I wish I could’ve said thank you to him, because my childhood would never have been the same without him.
R.I.P Robin, you will forever be missed but never forgotten~♥
