The Battle From Within

On the 11th of August 2014, the world said goodbye to a well-loved man, Robin Williams. A well-known actor, comedian, producer and screenwriter who was a comedy genius, but he also knew when to deliver a heart-breaking performance.
News reports indicate that Williams took his own life, which highlights the devastating reality that sometimes the people that bring such joy to people are suffering from the darkest demons. As many have already stated that Williams’s death brings light to the taboo subject of depression.

If you are suffering from depression or know of anyone, do not be afraid to pick up the phone and tell someone. It is okay to feel not okay at times.
