The Abe Lincoln to my Walt Whitman

    Robin Williams made quite an impact in life and an even bigger one in death. His suicide has opened a lot of eyes and given people a different view of the world and the people in it. Some people can’t comprehend how a man could feel so lonely when he was adored by so many. To many it just doesn’t make sense how a man who brought so much joy and happiness could be so sad. It’s hard to fathom that such dark thoughts were dwelling behind such bright eyes.
    It is often said that the happiest people are the saddest. That seems to be the case more often than not. There is a misconception that someone who is depressed is completely void of joy and incapable of being happy. Depression does not mean that someone is sad every second of every day.
     Making people smile is a great thing. Making them laugh is even better. 
     Suicide doesn’t necessarily mean that a person couldn’t find joy. Perhaps they are just tired of fighting.
