Williams chose roles that were sensitive and important although I didn't always enjoy them and often I didn't see many of his films. Perhaps because they were usually as subtle as being hit over the head with an anvil.
But there was one part thing he did that echoed deep and that was Witman's barbaric yawp.
I too am not a bit tamed—I too am untranslatable; I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.
- Walt Witman
For those of us who admit to having barbaric yawps and I have no idea how many there are, because more of us are kinda a bit like Will Hunting, undiscovered geniuses who yawp mighty yawps, while celebrating ourselves and not really paying attention to how we treat proven friends.
It is tragic anyone would suicide for whatever reason and one of the surest ways to prevent suicide is by being useful and needed by friends.
Which brings me to another tragedy, soldiers returning from the wars are committing suicide at an extreme rate, and while they may have friends and be useful, PTSD may be so severe their friends and family may be beyond being able to help them. And this is tragic too.
