Sunday the 26th of January was like a bad dream. 



Kobe, Gianna, Alyssa Altobelli, Coach Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Coach Mauser, Payton Chester, Sarah Chester, and Ara Zobayan and all of those ripped away from us way too soon Rest in Peace. Prayers for their families who I am sure are even more devastated about the news than any of us can imagine.

We’ve all lost someone close to us, not just athletes or famous people who happen to touch our lives. We’ve all lost family members, close friends, and loved ones. That’s something no one can divide humans on no matter how hard anyone can try, every sudden death will always remind us of how precious and short life is. 


Tragedies remind us to love and understand each other more and argue less, reminds us to tell people who we love that we love them before they hop in the car, go to the store, go to work, go to school. It makes us feel bad about the times we’ve wasted and It shows us that none of us are immortal and that millions die for no reason every day, even Kobe Bryant.


Kobe was an amazing father, a beloved husband, a Superstar champion athlete. An award-winning writer, an award-winning filmmaker, a successful public speaker, a successful entrepreneur, especially after investing in Body Armor energy drink. Kobe Bryant was a complete man, and in only 41 years of life, he touched so many lives. The loss of Kobe, Gianna, the Altobelli’s the Payton’s, Coach Mauser and Mr. Zobayan hit us like a bad dream, and I am sorry to say, we are never going to wake up.
