Remembering Robin Williams – Lori’s Favorite Robin William’s Moments
It is amazing how deep the human emotions go. A man who made us laugh, made us cry, made us think what the heck, left this world yesterday. Robin Williams was found dead on August 11th at the age of 63. I don't think he realized the exact impact he left on this world and how many lives he touched just by being himself. Robin Williams was a great actor, comedian, philanthropist but he had his demons. The demons that took him away from this world. I know you are inundated with Robin Williams this morning but when a man so great leaves the world, it leaves a hole. So I just wanted to share my favorite Robin Williams moments with you.
I was first introduced to Robin Williams when I was little as was most of the world when a man from Ork came to our planet.
Then one of my favorite comic strip characters came to life. Luckily a character I was able to share with my son.
Then as soon as we got used to the funny side of Robin Williams he showed us a different side of his acting.
Robin made radio look so fun!
Then Disney created one of my favorite movies of all time. A story about a street rat who became a Prince all because of a great friend.
Who could forget the nanny that everyone wished they had. However, before he was Mrs. Doubtfire, he had to find the perfect nanny look.
Then Robin gave us an Oscar winning performance in a small little movie written by two youngsters from Boston. This scene was ad-libbed. This is why he was so great. CAUTION: this contains NSFW language.
There are so many great moments of Robin Williams, his role in Nine Months, Jumanji, Night at the Museum, Patch Adams. I could go on and on as I'm sure you could as well.
My heart is heavy today because the world lost a great man. My heart is heavy today because of the way this man left this Earth.
I don't think society as a whole realizes just how serious depression is, you cannot just get over it, you cannot just take a pill. It is deep and it is painful. I just hope Mr. Williams finally found some peace.
Thank you sir for the laughs, the tears and all the what the hecks.
