I am not the type who is really into too many celebrities, whether they be actors, musicians, etc. But I always liked Robin Williams. He came across to me as funny, intelligent, genuine. For somebody who has lived 63 years, with some of the experiences he has had, to decide to take their own life is downright tragic. It’s hard to fathom the pain he must have been in to make such a decision and it highlights the importance of mental health.
There are a couple of movies that I, as a teacher, always found inspiring. Both starred Williams in the role of a teacher. In that sense he was my favorite movie teacher.
Seize the day. Life is short.
