On the Death of Robin Williams, American Cultural Ambassadors Mourn the Loss

"As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."

ARK in Berea:  David and I we're shocked and saddened to hear that the talented artist and arts activist, Robin Williams, passed away yesterday. As American Cultural Ambassadors, we remember him not only for his incredible career that brought joy to so many, but also for the way he used his talent to promote the Arts, he as left his mark on pop culture forever.

President Obama released a statement last night about Williams passing:
"Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien -- but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most -- from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets."

Robin's notable disappearance is a healthy reminder of our choices in the face of the challenges of our time which take so many lives unwillingly because of the unmet need for love. Depression is a crisis of learning held in the homeostasis of denial because we fear the experience of pain and wish to control it. Our finest moments are those in which we absorb and then release what appears to be dark energy, discovering underneath it a brilliance of serenity and joy never before experienced, layer upon layer, deeper and deeper into the heart of Love.

Our condolences are with Robin Williams family and friends, and we'll always remember him at the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) for his enormous talent and his generous heart.

David and Renate Jakupca,
American Cultural Ambassadors
