The tragic suicide of one of my generation’s most beloved comedians/actors has made us sad.

Robin Williams struggled with depression and addiction for many, many years. His death, sadly, did not come out of “nowhere.”

From what the media reports, he tried, very hard, to find peace.

Whatever he tried… it wasn’t enough.

I wish that Robin had been able to stay with us. I wish that Philip Seymour Hoffman had been able to stay with us. I wish that the father’s of 2 friends of mine had been able to stay with us, too.

If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts, I urge you…

Stay. Just one more day. Then another.

Don’t leave.

Please stay.
