Nanu Nanu, vultures

What is it with those media? A great man has died, and immediately they jump Mr. Robin Williams’ memory like famished vultures on a funeral spree. Yes! Let’s dive in and drag up all we can find. Hello? The dear man is dead?! I don’t care about his private affairs, about the troubles in his life.

Robin left bits and parts of himself, a gift from him to us all. Impressive and unique. I care about the person he was, the wealth of feelings and emotions he gave to us by pouring all he had in his characters. He gave away so much of his emotions and happiness. Perhaps too much. Leave him and his legacy alone and honor him for who he was. A great man, actor, husband, father, friend, son and so much more. Please.

Mr. Robin Williams, rest in peace.

  1. I so agree with you, Marion, and thank you for listing all his achievements here. He was such a great actor and I thoroughly enjoyed so many of his movies. Until we’ve ‘walked a mile in someone’s shoes’, we have no right to pass an opinion, let alone pass judgment on their personal life. (Maybe we wouldn’t even be able to make that mile.) I’m truly sad that he’s gone.

  2. I was so very sad to hear of his death. A man who gave so much to all of us yet had such terrible inner turmoil.
    What amazed me was the beautiful outpouring on Facebook. Everyone seemed to feel as sad as I did, which really, says a lot about how much respect people had for Robin Williams.

    Just 24 hours later I started to feel very angry. He’d been critisied publicly on Fox news and to add to that his poor, grieving daughter had abandoned Twitter because of nasty comments.

    My father-in-law hung himself this year and it’s a terrible experience for the family. Everyone around us has treated us with absolute respect and support. That’s exactly what the Williams family also deserve. The media/nasty people have no right to drag up his past or insult his memory or complain about him being ‘selfish’. If your opinion isn’t polite and respectful then keep it to yourself because the ONLY thing that is important right now is what that family is going through.

    1. Big warm hugs to you and your family, dear Sarah. That must have been so very difficult, and it probably still is, sad and heartbreaking. I’m very sorry.

      Robin Williams was loved all around the globe, and yes, he deserves our respect – and so does his family!

  4. I never understand people who feel to react like that. Sometimes i read comments on subject @ the page of Omroep Brabant. And if i do that i often stop reading them. Unbelievable what people dare ‘to say’on delicate news, hurting other people and relatives even more. Let him rest and find his Peace indeed. x Thanks for ‘your voice’ in this matter Marion

  5. thank you, marion, for doing this. it’s called a Body of Work, and its damned impressive, as impressive as the man behind it. Remember the man, and that we’re all flawed, too.
