This Will Absolutely Wipe You OUT With Grief

8/16/2014 10:46 AM PDT, by


If you do nothing else today, guys, or if you've been (for whatever reason) saving your tears for anything that could possibly be any more heartbreaking than Robin Willaims' actual suicide (this comes close), here's this video. You need to watch it, listen to it, be in the moment with it, and embrace it. Some of you might be thinking, "Oh my goodness, enough with all this sadness already," but if you're like me, and grasping at straws for closure in this tragedy, this might help you -- even if it's just a tiny bit. 

RIP, Robin, and to whomever created this moving tribute? It truly is marvelous.

Can you, I don't know, let the man rest in piece?

Suicide is a horrible thing. I lost my aunt and one of my closest friends to it. When I was a teen, I was in such a bad place because of abuse I tried twice to kill myself.

If his death has brought up these emotions in you, talk to family, talk to friends, seek a professional.

This is not the place. This is where you get paid for writing fake outrage stories about some photo you saw on Instagram. This is where you wonder if some celebrity got fake boobs.

To sandwich tributes of Robin Williams in between celebrity fluff is a disservice to him and his family. Stop. You've posted countless articles about him. Your main parent page TMZ is making big bucks off his death daily. Maybe show you are better than them? Maybe for once stop posting what will get the most views so you can make money. Maybe just let him be?

"grasping at straws for closure"....um that's what Robin was grasping for and ultimately CHOSE to take HIS life.
At the end of the day he sacrificed himself to be funny when his humor was actually masking something deeper. He now has closure. You are just grasping.

I agree 110% with Matt, the commenter before me. I've started calling this website "Robin Williams Wrapper" because it's all you fucking talk about. Let him rest in peace; you don't need to vomit out an article and videos every 4 hours.... We get it! I am in no way negating the sadness of this situation; it's fucking horrible he suffered so deeply, he chose to end his life and devastate his family. I truly believe he felt he had no other options, but will you please STOP.

Sarah Taylor's headlines often over hype her articles, but we agree on this one. Robin Williams was an amazingly gifted comedian, but also had the emotional range to be very good in dramatic roles. People that can genuinely elicit that range of emotion from viewers are exceedingly rare. I think Robin was often overlooked as a dramatic actor because he made it look so effortless. It is that evwevery day Joe delivery in his dramatic roles that made him all the more amazing. Unfortunately for you and I Sarah, I think that when the world loses someone like Robin Williams, closure comes very very slowly.

I agree with Matt. At first, I wasn't so sure and was ready to argue against him. But since I've never been to this site, I decided to check it out and quickly notice how it seems like every article posted is about Robin Williams, and seems to be posted every other hour. That's overkill. Robin Williams tragically died, we get it, and yes it is sad since he was amazing. But stop with the Robin Williams stories, it's time to move on.

I watched this video on another site a few days ago and it gave me the chills. Currently, USAToday also has this video on their front page. And AOL has a story about Robin Williams. So, it's not just FishWrapper.

My humble opinion - I saw it as a very lovely tribute.

I don't care about anything else, and I heartily apologize if this question has been already asked, as I'm unable to see previous posts...

My one-and-only question is - where is the quote from the video from, and bonus - if anyone has a transcript?!?

Thank you.
