OH MY GOODNESS! I am so incredibly sad right now! This news came so out of left field that I am still incredibly shocked by it.
It was announced just moments ago that Chadwick Boseman, our lovely Black Panther, has passed away from colon cancer. Apparently, he was diagnosed with the cancer four years ago and has kept it quiet ever since.
Chadwick Boseman was a great actor in many great movies and of course shined and had his big break with the over one billion dollar Black Panther movie. From what I have seen on interviews with him, he seemed like a very humble and genuinely nice dude and it is such a shame that he passed so gosh darn early in his life. Please take a moment and let me know your favorite Chadwick Boseman moment below! #RIPChadwickBoseman
I know this is not a theme park story, but it is a story about a person near and dear to my heart which is why I am reporting it here.
Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash this morning in Calabasas, California about 1 min away from my former community. I grew up loving and watching the Lakers because of Kobe. I still watch and cheer them on to this day because of what he did for me and the team. Hard work, dedication, championships and continued ambition have paved the way and inspiration for other great NBA players such as Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry.
I can’t even imagine how Vanessa and the rest of the family is feeling at this moment in time.
No cause of the crash has been determined yet, but it was reported that the engine began sputtering before the copter went down. It was also very foggy last night and this morning which definitely could have contributed to the crash. Prayers to his family and everyone involved.
What is your favorite Kobe Bryant memory? Share them below and let’s reflect on his wonderful amazing life together. #RIPKOBE
