This Was A Tough One

I've been struggling on what to post today. Last week I celebrated my daughter's birthday and today I'm posting about death. As many subscribe to death coming in threes, we had a trio of celebrity deaths this week. While I'm saddened at the loss of Lauren Bacall
 and Arlene Martel,
it is the tragedy of the death of Robin Williams that I think I should talk about.

As many of you know, after all the coverage, Robin Williams suffered from depression. He fought his inner demons for all of his life and finally lost that battle on Monday. I wish I could say that I understood what he was going through, but I don't. I have never suffered the way he, and many in the world, have. All I can say is that there is another way and that everyone, at some point in their lives, needs help. If you are feeling like there is no way out and are considering taking you own life, please seek out that help.

Also, if you know someone, as many of us do, that might be suffering from depression, please help them. Whether it's you personally, or just finding them someone else that can provide the help, please do so. Here is a great place to start:
