LETTERS: Burden one we can all share


Re: His smiles will live on, Aug. 19 letters.

Mr. Marc Burchell of Surrey wrote a letter to your paper, on the untimely death of Robin Williams.

My wife and I are both touched by this letter and its context, as we, too, know someone who is afflicted with depression.

Mr. Burchell has the gift of communicating to all of us on this painful and tragic subject. In some way, whether we are totally aware of it or not, depression has an impact on all human beings and in all walks of life.

We also agree that it is well within our power to make a huge difference to those we care about in our little corner of the world. It is a burden that can be shared. We know this.

Thanks, Mr. Burchell

Roger & Joanne McKellar, White Rock
