ruled a suicide. It is clearly not the first time an entertainer has chosen to end his or her life. However, we generally think of someone on the back side of a career or an addict. While Williams, had battles with drugs and alcohol, I think his death points to more underlying causes. While Williams, at this point of his career, was not a "red hot" talent. He was a looming presence on the Hollywood scene.
Perhaps, this tragedy can lead to something positive, perhaps it can raise awareness of Depression and how to manage it. But one thing we can do is stand up and applaud Mr. Williams for entertaining and making those around him happy, something that he, perhaps was not.
