    Did a double take when I saw the headlines. My heart goes out to his family. To go from the heights of glory to the pits of despair. May they take solace in the knowledge that he lives on in spirit. We are eternal beings of light.

    If there is one thing I will never fly on, its a helicopter. They say that if the engine fails, a helicopter can still glide down safely. Never seen that happen. They all fall from the sky and crash.

    Very very sad. Kobe Bryant was a giant of a man. A family man with great honour. 9 people were in the helicopter. My condolences to all.

    Los Angeles is acting like we lost someone important. He hurt women. We need to acknowledge that.

    I never knew this man, but I realized how that he was a hero. I like basketball, heartbroken for him to fly up. I wish that never had to happen.

    Fly high. 😔
