We’ve lost many notable icons over the past few years but this one is so different. The shock of the recent passing of Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter, the pilot and other families that perished in a helicopter crash Sunday morning January 26th in Calabasas CA.
What I am struck by most is the consistent sentiment about his most important role – a family man. It is abundantly clear to me this dedication to his family that prompted him to purchase a helicopter because he simply got tired of missing important family moments being stuck in LA traffic.
The world may have lost a basketball icon, but a wife and 3 daughters have suffered the greatest loss of all; a reality they will be reminded of daily. This loss has noticeably shifted the consciousness of many to what is really important.
In the end, what will bring comfort to those we leave behind? Will it be the praises of those we worked with or the precious, private moments shared? What legacy will you leave behind?
