The death of beloved Robin Williams has touched so many of us because his humor reached into our deepest souls and helped us laugh at the ordinary, the profound, the tragic and the absurd. He magically unraveled the common threads between us all. From Facebook to Twitter, network news to Internet insiders, the plaintive call is to pay attention to those who suffer from depression, as he did. It is a worthy cause, to incite compassion to those who are thus afflicted.
My question is though, how long will that empathy and compassion last?
