Letter: Turning the spotlight
August 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Many people suffering from mental illness (commonly referred to as “the mentally ill”) lead double lives: expending huge amounts of energy hiding unbearable anguish while trying to appear “normal.” Hopefully, Robin Williams’ heartbreaking death will turn the spotlight away from mass murders and other negative stereotypes toward the real agony people face every day.
