Food for Thought

While this certainly isn’t a laughing matter, the man himself, and all the good he has done has earned a place in our motivational efforts.

What else can be said about last week – the passing of Robin Williams was felt worldwide, and certainly, we here in the Cheeky Monkey office were sad to hear the news. It’s amazing the reach he had, and how many different stories are emerging about the way he positively affected so many lives.

One of our favorites is Norm MacDonald’s Twitter tribute (affectionately dubbed “The Best Robin Williams tribute” by the internet), which describes the (then) rookie comedian’s brush with a comic legend.

We’ll certainly miss the man’s talent and the way he gave laughter to so many. That said, he was also a man struggling with a severe mental disorder, and unfortunately lost his battle. For some of us, that battle is far too familiar, and we’d like to add our voices to the many imploring for more understanding, more compassion, and more help for people suffering from the effects of depression.
