It still doesn’t seem real that the comedic legend Robin Williams is no longer with us. Brink & I look back at the epic legacy of Mr. Williams. His talent was exceptional, and it seemed that he had a real joy to share with his audience. That apparent dichotomy in his life – between a public joy and what appears to have been some very dark times in his personal life – makes his story all the more poignant.
The extremely compelling Matt Walsh took to his blog last week and penned a provoking piece on the reaction to the loss, specifically expressing his belief that Mr. Williams death wasn’t something his disease inexorably demanded – but was his own choice.
Brink loved the piece and explains why. He felt it expressed truth in a bold, compelling and touching way.
I disliked it, though I normally very much enjoy Matt’s work. I express my hesitations as to the piece’s timing, tone & claim as to the matter of a decision / vs. the horrors of a disease.
Yet a midst all the inescapable sadness of this story, we wrap our discussion up with the great hope that there is One who is greater than all the powers of this earth – for good or ill. And we can each come to know Him.
