Kobe Bryant Death Stuns The Sports world
Before I discuss Kobe Bryant’s death, I want to start by giving a warning to the reader. We are about to get into one of the most controversial and emotionally charged topics in sports today, the death of Kobe Bryant. The story itself is not that important; what is important is what you can do to help a friend, family member or person you care about during a time like this.
I had a close friend who had lived with Kobe for several years. I heard all the news today when it came out that Kobe was dead, so I reached out to him this morning and let him know that I had heard everything he wanted to say.
He said, “Thank you for letting me know, that was a nice human connection.” So let’s move on.
When the news first broke about Kobe, there were two sides to the story. Some say that he was murdered while others say that his car accident was an accident, but the truth is that he died from natural causes.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a clue who did it, because we don’t know enough about Kobe. The car accident he was in was the most recent incident, so some speculate that it may have been staged.
Others speculate that Kobe was killed in a hit and run, and that someone wanted to hurt him badly enough that they would kill him before they hit him with the car. Whether or not this is true doesn’t matter.
Either way, Kobe’s death is devastating. The trauma of losing someone you love, as painful as it is, can be much more difficult to handle.
If you know or even if you are going through this situation right now, I urge you to reach out and help someone. You don’t need to call your loved one, but you can start a fund to help them during the difficult times.
Kobe wasn’t just a player, he was a great guy, and a good friend. Don’t let the death of your friend take over your life.
Help those who are hurting, and become a better person in the process. Take advantage of the opportunity for you to get in touch with your friends and family and give them a smile.
You will find a lot of support for people affected by suicide and are dealing with the stress of losing a loved one. Support is needed at all times, so please be kind and do something for someone today.
