Built on Bones

To the glory of hell and the virtue of sin

Robin Williams

It is not my place to say I miss a man I never met, especially when his family and friends are suffering. However, I will say that the world truly feels darker without this legend to brighten it up.

I tend to keep my opinions to myself on this website, but this is something that I can’t stay silent about anymore.

Please be aware of the symptoms of depression and warning signs of suicidal ideation in both yourself and others. We cannot let the stigma surrounding seeking help for mental illness continue to prevent people from saving both their own lives and the lives of others. Mental illness, like any other illness, needs treatment. Depression, when severe and left untreated, is a life-threatening condition, and there should be no shame in seeking treatment for a medical condition of any kind. Period.

If you or a loved one is suffering, do not be afraid to get treatment, whether that treatment is medication or talk therapy or support groups or whatever combination is right and works best for you. Do not feel that you’re not depressed “enough” to talk to someone. Ignoring depression at the onset, as with any other illness, only allows it to get worse, to the point where it can become a literal medical emergency. Everyone deserves to live a life that is not defined by their illness. Your life is more valuable than anyone’s opinion. Period.

Education and awareness about these issues SAVES LIVES. We cannot allow this invisible disease continue to steal people away from us.

Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. This world is not and will never be the same without you.

An illegal inmate tattoo reading “Katie’s Revenge” on the forehead of convicted rapist and murderer Anthony Ray Stockelman. 
The tattoo was forcibly given to Stockelman while in prison by another inmate after learning that he had raped and murdered 10-year-old Katie Collman.

Please do this to every rapist with disease infected needles.

  • Abusers can do nice things for people they are not abusing.
  • Abusers can do nice things for people that they are abusing.
  • Abusers can otherwise seem like nice, caring, supportive people when they are not actively abusing someone.
  • It does not mean they’re not fucking abusers.

IMPORTANT.
