«If you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky
when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day…
make a wish and think of me.
Make your life spectacular.»

It’s also important to remember that Zelda Williams is not the keeper of her father’s memory.

Robin Williams was one of those performers that was just woven into my childhood, and I often find myself looking back fondly on his body of work. I’m forever sorry to my local Blockbuster in Castaic, California for stealing your copy of One Hour Photo because I loved Robin Williams’ movies.
But today is important for a lot of reasons. It’s important for us to remember the actor and comedian we all loved, and it’s important to remember those who are struggling and how to help.
