Reading the news just now about Robin Williams. Robin died of suicide which makes it even harder for his family and fans. Every time I saw his name in the news I prayed for him to be saved from sin and born into the family of God. The news said he had suffered from severe depression as of late which got me thinking about how many creative, funny comedians have suffered from severe depression. Red Skelton, Dick Cavette, Art Buckwald, Rodney Dangerfield, Freddy Prinze, Alan Alda, Richard Dreyfuss, Jonathan Winter (who was Robin's mentor), and dozens more. A lot of studies have been made trying to find the connection between depression and comedy. I hope some good comes out of all this tragedy connected with Robin Williams' suicide. Maybe it will encourage more to seek help and pray for healing from the Great Physician who loves them so.
