'Genie, you're free': Robin Williams' suicide sparks controversial statements
But apparently when everyone says “they’re in a better place now” to every other person who ever died it’s perfectly fine? In the right mind it sends the same message - Death is an escape to a better place. That message is wrong, but you’d have to read it as such, and for the most part people won’t read it as such. Read “wrong” a whole hell of a lot of things can make a person think death is an escape. Do not dirty the waters around a sentimental message made for an amazing, brilliant and funny person who lost his fight.
Depression and Suicidal thoughts/tendencies are an illness, do not play games with them by picking and choosing your wars just because it was aimed at a famous person.
