To Whom It May Concern,

A case of the blues has fell over the world.

Whether you were a fan or not, you’re heart was heavy when you received the news about NBA Allstar and Legend, Kobe Bryant and the 8 passengers on the fatal helicopter ride. (My condolences to all those involved)

I personally think that this loss has triggered self reflection and increased awareness on the subject of the inevitable…. death.

It doesn’t matter your social status, tax bracket or physical condition.

A life can end at any time, for any reason.

The loss of rapper, entrepreneur and activist, Ermias Asghedom (Nipsey Hussle), taught us that life can be taken even when you’re trying to do the right thing.

Kobe Bryant and Nipsey Hussle

Kobe taught us it can be taken when you’re doing something you causally do everyday with no way to foresee your fate.

Death teaches us to appreciate who and what we have.

The time of taking people for granted, has passed. Our world needs love more now than ever.


Tell people you love them because you can.

Be gentle to strangers but cognizant of your surroundings.

Send that message or make that call when someone crosses your mind.

Sit down and actually have a conversation with the people you care about.

Take care of your mental and physical health.

And FEEL, unapologetically.

  1. I was just talking with some friends about how Nipsey’s death exposed the importance of ownership/entrepreneurship and community uplift, while Kobe’s death showed the importance of fatherhood and family… Hopefully our people model some of the things these Black Legends did and get our families and communities in order.

    1. I agree 100%. I think that we also have some valid examples of creating a legacy with smart business moves so that when tragedy occurs, our families are also set. That’s honestly one of the most hidden lessons to learn. Nobody wants to talk about/deal with death until its already effected your household
