I find myself grieving the loss of actor Robin Williams the way I would a member of my family. I’ve been puzzled by my own reaction. Like many people, I am a huge fan of his work, especially his more serious movie roles. But other actors and singers and news makers have died whose work I also admired and I didn’t feel like this There are people who pay less attention to the world of celebrities and red carpet photos than I do. But not many. There isn’t much I am less interested in than what movie star is dating what pop singer or what some actress wore to a movie premier. I couldn’t stop thinking about Robin Williams and how it’s affecting me. So I gave in and pondered and here’s what I’ve got. Robin Williams death is lodged in my heart because of depression, ministry, aging, and hope.
