RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Words can't fully describe how heartbreakingly tragic this is.  As someone who grew up watching films like "Hook," "Jumanji," and "Mrs. Doubtfire," hearing about the death of Robin Williams hit me more so than any other death I have been alive to sadly experience.  You'd never think of someone as light-hearted and happy like Robin Williams being taken out of this world at such a young age.  63 might not be the youngest someone could be, but it is pretty young considering how long others have lived for.  For me, this is incredibly hard to comprehend.  His movies have made me laugh so much and have given me so much joy in life.  But alas, the beauty that can be taken out of all of this is that he will forever live on in the movies that we have grown to love him in.  Mrs. Doubtfire will always be there to care to our needs and make us laugh.  The Genie will be there to grant our wishes and to sing a catchy number or two.  And finally, Williams will always be there to tug at our heart strings, whether that's in "Good Will Hunting" or "Patch Adams."  Peter Panning decided to grow up in "Hook," but he still kept the kindred spirit that will live in all of us, even if we choose to grow up.  We must maintain the spirit that he has left in our hearts while our minds and bodies continue to grow year after year.  I wish nothing but the best of luck to his friends and family, and I hope nothing but the best for them at this sad moment in time.  Everybody dies, but Robin Williams passing away here and now is something else.  Long live Robin Williams , and may he rest in peace and continue to make the world laugh, cry, and smile with his endless collection of movies.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
