Robin Williams passing was a huge shock. Many of us grew up with him in our lives, even if it was through a tv or movie screen. His impact on our collective psyche was and continues to be huge. Michael Brown likely wasn’t well known outside of his immediate circle of family and friends. This is not a contest by any means, but I have a feeling that his life and death will mean a great deal to us all as time goes on.
