One million people died this past week. One of them was Kobe Bryant.


When a celebrity dies we notice. We didn’t notice that the other one million died… Unless one of them was a relative or friend.

A celebrity has died too young and we notice. And we do need to notice. Because, when the world stops and notices that someone died a tragic death, it gives us each an opportunity to pause to reflect on our choices, and to remind ourselves what is really important in life, and in death.
