whenever my parents split up, i thought my dad was going to dress up as ms doubtfire to come see us more often.
But in the end he shared custody and i see him every day
Robin Williams taught me things arent always going to be okay for you but you keep fighting for whats right. RIP
When I was a kid, a cartoon genie made me laugh and helped me learn to sing, contributing to a love of music that would stick with me for the rest of my life. A lawyer rediscovered his youth when he learned to use his imagination all over again, and as I watched, I too learned to practice being creative. A father separated from his kids taught me that sometimes things won’t always go quite like I plan, but that I can overcome even the toughest rejections by reinvesting in myself. When I was in high school, I met an English teacher who taught me to think for myself, to challenge the status quo, and to seize the day (and also to read more!)—ideas that touched me deeply. As I got older, a psychologist showed me that being a man means acknowledging the things about myself that are not my fault, and moving past them. Later, a man in a rainbow jacket taught me to laugh at the darkness in the world, because it’s out of my control anyway.
It is unfortunate that sometimes it takes someone passing away to realize how much they impacted your life.
Thank you, Robin Williams. You will be missed.
