Remembering Robin Williams


Patch Adams - 1998  Quote  

“What's wrong with death sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can't we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity, and decency, and God forbid, maybe even humor. Death is not the enemy gentlemen. If we're going to fight a disease, let's fight one of the most terrible diseases of all, indifference.”


Stop the Indifference

Society still considers Depression and Mental Illnesses, yes, that is what it is, a taboo. The disease that must not be named, sadly it exist with statistical facts that are heartbreaking.
The words depression and anxiety make us uncomfortable because anyone suffering is made to feel that they are wrong by social standards, they are hushed, judged, and treated indifferent, that is showing no particular interest or sympathy for and being unconcerned.
The epidemic of suicide rates in today's world has opened our eyes to understanding and the necessity of being able to communicate with each other from the heart, really listen to the feelings inside the words spoken. You may be the the one person who can make a difference in someone elses life. Be the helping light in a world full of so much need.
