A lot of people must have thought, â€œWhy did he choose to die this way?â€ when they heard or read the announcement of the death of Robin Williams.
Robinâ€™s last act showed to all of us how crucial self-esteem is.
None of us have the strength to fight our own battles alone. Those who seemingly do often receive this needed strength from an outside source.
Why did he choose to die this way?â€ is a cry we are able to use on a daily basis.
His death should remind us that any person we come in contact with might benefit from a smile or a friendly word, and that with this little effort we might prevent others to do likewise.
If all of us who are touched with this sad tragedy would demonstrate an increase of our concern for others, Robinâ€™s last act could have a greater influence for good than any of his exceptionally skillful acting or comedy endeavours.
