The one silver lining of tragedy is that it seems to bring everyone together. It seems like no matter what sport, what race, or what religion a person is they have been affected by the death of Kobe. There isn’t much else to say other than Kobe was an icon. I never quite understood how big the death of Elvis was when my grandmother used to tell me about it. Now I understand a bit better. Didn’t matter if you were a Kobe fan or not, you knew that what he brought to the world was important.

This mask is incredible.
