AGENCIES, Los Angeles: Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. has become emotional owing to the losses that the deadly coronavirus is causing the world over. He has also lost close people to the virus.
Taking to social media to express his grief, he informed his fans that he has lost friends and relatives over the past few weeks amd what saddens him most is the inability to mourn them properly with standard conventions.
“First off, thanx for all the b-day wishes, much appreciated..Like so many, our family has lost friends and relatives over the last several weeks. The (well advised) inability to congregate , grieve , mourn, celebrate in a natural way has been less than ideal..When the time is right, I’ll pay proper homage to the fallen..Meanwhile, I feel driven to think of some new ways of communicating with y’all—Maybe give voice to YOUR struggles and insights during this unprecedented time? Maya Angelou would have turned 92 today, and I couldn’t agree more with her wisdom on the matter “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”. I’ll check back soon, Until then, stay; Safe, Optimistic, Vigilant, And maybe most importantly- Connected, RDJ,” he wrote.
