I am saddened by the death of Robin Williams. I enjoyed watching him in so many movies. More than his comedic roles, though, it was his more serious performances that resonated made me love him.

It’s impossible to ignore turmoil taking place around the world today. War, epidemic diseases, natural disaster, and rising death tolls dominate the daily news cycle. It's easy to succumb to feeling overwhelmed by global events; indeed they are powerful illustrations of how powerless we actually are.
