Six years ago, #RobinWilliams died by suicide, sending a wave of shock and grief around the world. People wanted answers. What we were left with was inadequate. Perhaps what Williams' death underscored best is what many of us are often scared to admit: suicide can touch anyone.— Alia E. Dastagir (@alia_e) August 11, 2020
