How we are diminished by the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and 7 others

  • The global grieving index following their passing has increased
  • The global tears reserve following their passing has dropped
  • Coming at a time many parts of the world are in panic mode over the coronavirus, lassa fever, bush fires, swarms of locusts, means that the attention given to grieving the basketball legend and others will be short-lived
  • Coming at a time the world has become so fast-paced and attention spans have reduced considerably, means that the attention given to grieving the basketball legend and others will be short-lived
  • Following so closely that special moment in which he showed grace by acknowledging the latest achievement of Lebron James,’ means we are forever denied further opportunities of enrichment from such show of grace
  • Though he had retired from the game that brought him greatness, we could still enter his world, breath the air he breathed on those special occasions when he conquered basketball courts with such grace and charm, pulling us into his space, whenever we encountered him in retirement. Now those moments are gone forever
  • His wife and three surviving children, and the rest of the family, near and extended, will now continue the rest of the journey without him. Irrevocably and irreversibly.
