Disney Legend Robin Williams Passes Away but Continues to Live On

It was only yesterday that I found out that Robin Williams had passed away, age 63, he committed suicide and one of the leading cause was depression. I’m still processing the news and it’s shocking– I’ve watched the movies he made and he had is always an inspiration to me. I believe his genuine love to help others and make others laugh can be felt through his work from “Patch Adams”, “Hook”, “Mrs. Doubtfire”, and of course, as Genie in “Aladdin”.

I wonder what had happened to make him leave this world and only wished that there was something I could’ve done. Depression is a very hard enemy to fight, it’s not physical or tangible, even though there may be someone there, often times it is in the inner level of a person that is the biggest struggle.  

To the Robin Williams’ family and friends, I’m so sorry for your loss, Robin Williams is a true legend and his legacy will live on. I hope that Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, California will plan a tribute to Robin Williams, a genuine kind individual. Genie would say, “you’ve never had a friend like me” and he’s right– I’ve never had a friend like Robin Williams who has been a part of my life and will continue to be a part of my life and continue on through my future kids.

Do you think they should pay a tribute to Robin Williams? If so, how do you think they should? Let us know below, and thank you.
