Like many of you I was surprised to hear of Robin Williams’ death this week but in a way, I wasn’t. While I thought he was very funny and I liked him, there was an edge to him, a certain unhappy energy that surrounded him, that I always wondered about.
Each and every one of us has a unique role to play in this world -- no one else can play this part. No one is supposed to end their own life, when they do, it's as if a link in a chain is broken and it slows down the progress of humanity. We all need each other. When someone commits suicide it's as if everyone around the world shrinks a little.
