I cannot find words to describe the devastating loss of one of America’s well known basketball phenom who was taken in an accident that took place yesterday with Kobe Bryant and his thirteen year old daughter Gianna. Kobe played guard for the Lakers who selected him with the 13th pick in the 1996 NBA draft from the Charlotte Hornets. He became a legend in his basketball career and was known worldwide. Kobe Bryant was a family man, a wonderful husband and father of four daughters and was taken at such a young age of 41.

I was once a fan of the Lakers when I lived in California and was fortunate to attend a game in 1980 and watch my favorite, Kareem Abdul Jabbar whom I wrote my English paper on in 9th grade. I was also fortunate to have seen Magic Johnson in action in L.A. Below are the ones who lost their lives in the crash May they all rest in peace and may God bring peace to their families who now live with the aftermath of losing their loved one. The Lakers were fortunate to have Kobe Bryant be a part of their team. Fly high Kobe, fly high and touch the sky…
