    In 2001 I went to the Lakers Championship parade and at the parade I found out I was going to be a dad for the first time. 18 years later we both were at the Staples Center both crying and writing our thoughts on the Kobe board. Rest in Power Kobe. Love

    It's been almost 2 weeks and the shock of Kobe's passing still hasn't subsided, this is something that'll take us years to get over, I mean this isn't just some basketball player, this is Kobe Freakin Bryant, he's not suppose to die

    This helicopter accident is a 17.5 million dollar loss for the Orange County Airfield. The Skikorsky Helicopter has been in service since 1977. We request the media respect the privacy of the authorities and the Surviving family members of those in the accident.

    My best hypothesis is the SKIKORSKY helicopter endured low visibility with mist and fog combined with canyon winds, which caused a downdraft from Santa Ana winds, which can create CANYON WINDS. Combined a flight hazard of turbulence. A SKIKORSKY of this type has a maximum capacity of 13 persons, or an established weight rating. A near overloaded helicopter added a few weather hazards could have highly probably caused this. Our prayers for the surviving families.

    Maybe God had a plan with Kobe. He came here..he was a light to the world. Basketball was his medium. God raised him up so high that even teenagers know who Kobe is. Maybe God allowed Kobe to do all that and raise so High so he could use this time to show the world something through this. It's times like these that make humanity as a whole think on life and purpose.
