I am shocked and grieved to hear of the death of Robin Williams, a man of immense talent who meant so much to so many, who made so many people laugh and yet couldn't overcome his own darkness. This scene sprang immediately to mind from his movie The Dead Poet's Society: after a student commits suicide, making Robin Williams' character, John Keating, lose his job, his students bid him farewell in a way that shows that they have absorbed the lessons he has tried to teach them, and will remember him with respect, honor and love. As a teacher, as a writer, and as someone who has struggled with depression, I can't think of a better scene to honor such a special man.
