Robin Williams is dead and I cried when Pike died in Star Trek

Two different guys.

One a comedian; the other a Starfleet captain.

One shoots movies.

One shoots lasers.

But they're not so different, are they?

They're both dead. They were both scared. They were both victims of circumstance.

And yes, I know: a) This is just another shout into the Abyss about Robin Williams, and there's plenty of people (who aren't famous) who deserve just as much mourning. And b) I know it's silly, but I totally cried when they killed off Pike.

They were both good people. And I know it's not much, but they both taught me something about life.

Because, in the end, they were both captains.

O captain, my captain.


Thanks for commenting! *Awkward high five*
