Wow. Wasn't expecting that. He was a funny bastard and also had really incredible acting talent on top of it. Sad.

Robin Williams died from suicide. He was battling a lot of demons. It is a huge loss of a very talented comedian. He brought a lot of laughter to people.
People who commit suicide do not want to die, they just don't know how to take away the pain. Just a very sad loss.

Very sad. He was a talented actor and comedian. There is a great lesson to the "if only" people. To all those that say I could be happy "if only" I was, richer, better looking, smarter, or successful, this is a wake up call. He appeared to have it all but still struggled with addictions and depression. Be content in who you are. Achieve but you define your worth. Not others. If your happy in your skin then your already successful.

I've just published chapter three of Undercovers Detective. I would love your feedback on this story. I'm planning on ten chapters at least. If you haven't read one yet, I've included links for both chapter one and two. I hope you like them.

I am in shock I cant believe such a talented man has left this earth! He will be greatly missed. I for one was a huge fan, he made me laugh so much, and made me think when he would do dramatic rolls. my heartbreaks for his family and friends.

He was so talented and excelled not only in comedy, of course, but equally in dramatic parts
So very sad...feels like we lost a member of the family

Rest in peace, dear Robin

His entire career was incredibly unusual, in the best possible way. There wasn't a predictable bone in him. I only wish that life didn't cost him so much effort and pain. RIP Robin.

My favorite comedian. He could so easily make me laugh with little effort. I was astonished when I heard the news, and very saddened.

A true genius and a master of his craft.

Made me appreciate comedy super early.

Totally bummed out the rest of my day when I heard.

He will be sorely missed. He will always be the best in his profession. But that's my opinion. R.I.P. Mr. Williams.

You picked a great scene lucky_dragonfly. This is by far one of my favorite movies. As an English teacher, I want to impact my students' lives the way he did. He got them to think, to believe, to take chances, to live.

Robin Williams was a unique and amazing man who made us laugh until we cried. Who knew he was truly crying behind that amazing smile of his. So, in honor of his memory, a man who was an amazing actor and comedian, I wish to share this scene from Dead Poets Society to remind us all... to Carpe Diem.

Very sad news. Thoughts and prayers with his wife and children and friends left behind.

He once said that 'Suicide was a long term solution to a short term problem'. Sad that he took that solution!

Such shocking and saddening news. He was truly one of the greats. It's so tragic he decided to leave us. While I sincerely hope he's found the peace he craved, my heart goes out to his family and friends.

Please take a look at my latest story, Banging for Roof.

And for a sexy little rush of Adrenalin, pick yourself up a copy of the Lush Summer anthology.
