It certainly is saddening when someone with significant impact on society dies. Of course this is not to say someone like Robin Williams is worth more than any other person. But nevertheless its not at all surprising to hear yet another outwardly successful but inwardly troubled person taking their own life, especially an actor. Many people will point to a lack of help for depression and the need to aid those suffering with this mental illness. While that certainly is a tangible step that can be taken, society (especially Western society) will discount the soul and spirit of a person. It pains me as a Christian to hear about people like Mr. Williams who feel empty inside. The tragedy in all this is that I know the solution to erasing that emptyness.
