Have we Crossed the Line?

Does she not hit the nail on the head? Back off everyone!! Give the family time to grieve and spend time with your loved ones!!


I do not always respond to tragedies in the world.  When I do it is after taking time to think and reflect.  I am saddened by the death of Robin Williams, but I am equally appalled by the online frenzy surrounding his death.  It has passed the point of “grief” and “respect.”  It has passed even the point of voyeurism.

While it it is appropriate to express sadness at the loss of a great talent, going to the level of grief and mourning we would experience at the loss of a close friend or loved one may not be.  The intimate moments we share with actors on stage, screen and other media lead us to a false sense of intimacy believing  we actually know them.

I encourage everyone to honor the memory of Robin Williams by taking time away from the news and the internet.  Spend time connecting to those  you…
