Dear Kobe it’s been a full year since you passed and honestly it still feels so surreal. My grind, my competitiveness, my passion came from watching you devote your life to your craft. The countless hours, the precision and focus, the sacrifices. You embodied more than the average and you worked as if you weren’t one of the elites. Your very words helped me in my darkest hour. You inspired me to give my all and never feel ashamed for doing so. To always do what I love, and love what I do. Finding the solution within the struggle and grasping knowledge from all aspects of life. Unfortunately your life was cut short at out expense, but God had other plans for you. Thank you for everything you left behind to us all and I pray that we can become the greatest version of ourselves as you did!
