Kobe Bryant’s death is a tragedy on many levels

Thirteen-year-old Gianna Bryant and her father are gone, and that is not quite how Bryants’ story will be told, but it’s how we should think about it first. We all get one life, none more important than any other. Gianna did not have the chance to live hers, and the sadness is unbearable. For her mom, Vanessa, and for her sisters Natalia, Bianca and Capri, there will be a million tributes, and all will be insufficient. What do you say? What does it matter?

Their thoughts are theirs, to form over time, and to share only if they ever feel the desire. Our thoughts about the Bryant family should start with Gianna, and nobody understood that better than Kobe Bryant.
