When we raise our glasses today, we raise them to a friend who made us laugh and cry within a single sitting. An undeniable talent of our time, the actor, Robin Williams, was born today back in 1951. Today we celebrate in order to honor his ability to touch America on screen through his multi-faceted character and sharp wit. So whether it was his role as Peter Pan in Hook, playing mom in Mrs. Doubtfire, the Genie in Aladdin, the endearing man-child in Jack, or Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting that moved you, all the parts came from the same skilled man.
“You are only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” – Robin Williams
And to that we say “CHEERS!”
