Disability Community Remembrance: A Tribute to Robin Williams

Robin Williams.
1951-2014
Comedian, actor. Star of Jumanji, Good Will Hunting, Mrs. Doubtfire, RV.
He starred at a time when other people with learning disabilities grappled restlessly to keep up in the public school systems throughout the U.S. and elsewhere. For many we will remember the shows for our troops overseas, and shall stand out as a good role model to all.  He stands out with Keanu Reeves, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, and Henry Winkler as people who excelled in the entertainment industry with a learning disability. 


For all of us, disabled and not,  let us all remember what every single individual is capable of achieving when given the right tools and resources.  When we see others who are discriminated against or abused, let's take note and take action.  Many do not fit into our tiny boxs that can only accommodate so many people, but they are built to give us so much and to receive as well.  Let us remember that the more we give to communities and individuals, the more we are likely to gain in return. 

R.I.P.
