First of all, congratulations to everyone who got their Leaving Cert results recently, and to anyone who got offered places in courses they have applied for! Well done! I hope you all enjoy your college experience and get where you want to be.
To anyone who may not have gotten the points they were aiming for, or an offer from their first choices; congratulations! You finished the Leaving Cert, which is a feat in itself, and you are still standing the other side which I believe deserves a well done too. And don’t worry, there are other options out there to get where you want to be. Or if you don’t have a clue what you want to do in life yet that’s ok too.
Life only begins now folks, its the start of it all. So make the most of it. <3
Today we heard of the tragic loss of household name and comic genius Robin Williams, who was found in his home Sunday afternoon. He died by suicide.
Beginning his screen career as alien visitor Mort in “Mort and Mindy” in the 1970’s, Robin Williams has helped to mould our childhood memories with iconic roles such as Mrs Doubtfire, the Genie from Disney’s “Aladdin” and a grown-up Peter Pan who finds his inner child again. A man who struggled with depression and addiction is entire life, he showed great strength and courage trying to overcome these troubles. He stayed sober for over 20 years after drink and drug abuse problems, only seeking therapeutic help in his later years. And all the way, he willingly shared his gift of laughter with the world, bringing joy to many when he may not have been feeling so joyous himself.
Though he was primarily known for his comedy roles, Mr Williams was an extremely talented dramatic actor. Winning an Oscar for his role in “Good Will Hunting” (1997), he turned heads in “Dead Poet’s Society” (1989) and broke through the big screen with his dynamic role in “Good Morning, Vietnam” (1987). My personal favourite was a generally unknown voice-role in animated feature “Ferngully” as Batty; a talkative fruit-bat who escaped from an animal-test lab and returns to the rainforest, not fully intact. I was quite the eco-aware child.
As we remember a great actor, we must remember that he was also a father and husband, and more importantly a person. A person who touched many hearts in his somewhat short life. As his wife said yesterday, let’s hope that “the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions”. Rest In Peace Robin, we say goodnight to a genius.
"Never say goodbye, because saying goodbye means going away, and going away means forgetting." - Peter Pan
