Robin Williams Statue on the 'Good Will Hunting' Bench
Robin Williams was able to touch the lives of millions with his quick wit, roll-off-the-tongue improv and comedy, and acting roles that have touched and ingrained into the minds of people all around the world.
Whether it was getting us to dance and believe in wishes as a Genie, take soldiers' minds off the war as a fast-paced DJ in Vietnam, a father who will do anything to spend time with his kids, or a therapist that refuses to give up on an intelligent young man, Robin Williams was there to make us laugh, cry, and make us forget about real life for a few hours at a time.
One of his most iconic roles, one that nominated and won him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, was as therapist Dr. Sean Maguire. Although there were many scenes that grabbed the attention of the audience and the Academy, none stick out more now then the famous "Your move, Chief" Park Bench scene.
This petition is to gain support to create a bronze statue of Robin Williams and place it on that bench, so that everyone has the chance to sit with him, stare out into the water, and contemplate life, love, and good memories.
