A sad day

Robin Williams was reported to have been found dead today.  

It's thought he died by suicide.

He was known to be suffering from depression.

The news has been full of how great Robin Williams was with tributes flooding in from the great and the good, and David Hasselhoff.

The Samaritans have advice for the media on the reporting of suicide; I'm not sure all media outlets followed that advice today.

But the news coverage has allowed some discussion about depression.

The thing that, for me, makes today sad, is that a man died because he felt he wasn't good enough, and that is very, very sad.
