Like most I’m heartbroken and sad about this news myself. The tragedy of basketball icon Kobe Bryant and his 13 year old daughter, Gianna, getting killed in a helicopter crash along with several other passengers. I was never much of an NBA fan and don’t really care for basketball at all but this is very sad and tragic.
Kobe was an icon in the NBA and was one of the greats. Thoughts and prayers go out to Vanessa Bryant and the surviving daughters of the Bryant family. Kobe (41) and Gianna (13) were both too young. They both had a long life ahead of them. What’s most heartbreaking about this is that this family just had a newborn baby and she’s going to have to grow up without a father now.
Yeah, life is short but keep in mind that famous people & sports figures… they are real people like the rest of us. Plane crashes and helicopter crashes are both quite common. Plane and helicopter crashes have killed many famous people over the years. Being famous may sound fun but it can be very dangerous with all that travelling they do… being on the road all the time and travelling through the sky a lot. Plane and helicopter crashes can happen.
Like most, I was shocked and felt a little devastated even though I’m not much of an NBA fan. Losing Kobe is a sad loss in America. RIP Kobe and Gianna. This is gonna be a tough week.
