Following news of Robin William's suicide, popular League of Legends YouTuber and American comedian Greg Sky Williams took to the video sharing service that made him famous to publish "A Message To The Depressed." In the video, Sky ditches the funny man act for a moment in order to deliver a bevy full of truths. He lays his heart out on his sleeve when he describes exactly what depression is and how all-encompassing it is. At the end of the video, he offers a suicide hotline number to those in need, but offers a little more on the situation at the top of the YouTube comments section:
I just wanna amend something that may or may not be a problem.I don't mean to leave the statement 'seek help' as just me writing you off to a hotline. Sometimes those statements can be empty to those who DON'T have the people. If you have the time and the means, please the physical closeness is sometimes the difference between a life changing decision. 1700 emails later and I'm almost in tears myself from how many people really took from this video. Thank you all so much for your kind words. =]
Given that Sky himself has gone through depression in the past, and the fact that the video has gone viral since its being published less than a day ago... that's all truly heartwarming. It just goes to show that something good can come out of any situation if we so will it.
