Robin Williams…I guess everyone has a hero he or she secretly loves. Sure there are the Clint Eastwoods or John Waynes. Humphry Bogarts or Lauren Bacalls, Betty Whites.
But for me Robin was it. Secretly I had always wished he would have been my father. Imagine that. A manic depressive criminal wants a manic depressive comedian for a father. So yes when I saw the Breaking news flash Robin Williams dead I lost it. So sad. Heart Broken. I know people may not believe that. Screw em. At least i can be honest. I love Robin Williams. And i am so sad.
I grew up with Robin Williams. Mork and Mindy meant an hour of peace in my home. No Rape, No Beatings, just good laughs. Fear and Nervousness forgotten. I have always been greatful for those cease fire laughs.
