“I don’t know a lot about depression and what it does to a person, I know people who suffer from it, and it seems to be one of the most dangerous and understood diseases. I do know that it surrounds us, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from.
I also know that it has just taken a bright light from us in Robin Williams. The more I hear stories of how amazing this man was, the more I wanted to do something for him. This is the best way I know how. Put his smile on your wall and we will help aware.ie to help other people. Thanks in advance guys, and a huge thank you to the guys at plusprint.ie for helping out on this project….”
Free next Tuesday?

“Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the Summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.”
