FILE - This Aug. 14, 2009 file photo shows actor Robin Williams in Los Angeles. Williams, whose free-form comedy and adept impressions dazzled audiences for decades, died Monday, Aug. 11, 2014, in an apparent suicide. Williams was 63. Americans are closing out 2014 on an optimistic note, according to a new Associated Press-Times Square Alliance poll. Nearly half predict that 2015 will be a better year for them than 2014 was, while only 1 in 10 think it will be worse. There’s room for improvement: Americans give the year gone by a resounding ‘meh.’(AP Photo/Matt Sayles, File)They each turned a moment of violence into a call to action.

FILE - In this Dec. 27, 1983 file photo provided by Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope John Paul II, left, meets Mehmet Ali Agca, in Agca's prison cell in Rome. The Vatican says the Turk who shot and wounded John Paul II in 1981 has laid flowers on the saint's tomb in St. Peter's Basilica. A Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Ciro Benedettini, said the surprise visit Saturday by Mehmet Ali Agca lasted a few minutes. As with other flowers left by visitors to the tomb, the white blossoms were later removed by basilica workers. John Paul visited the incarcerated Agca in 1983 and later intervened with Italian authorities to gain Agca's release in 2000 from the Italian prison where he was serving a life sentence for the assassination attempt in St. Peter's Square. (AP Photo/L'Osservatore Romano, File)VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Turkish gunman who shot and wounded John Paul II in 1981 laid white flowers Saturday on the saint's tomb in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican officials said.
