“I have been deeply affected by the passing of Kobe, Gigi, and the others in that tragic flight weeks ago. Since then, I’ve witnessed the well deserved outpouring of love and support for the families that had so much left to give, and it’s helped me reflect and gain perspective…why has this touched me in the way that it did? Why has it kept me up at night, and brought me so many tears?” he wrote.

“He was the real life superhero our world needs,” he went on to say about Kobe.

“That’s what we will all miss. That’s why we hurt. Because we know that he was always fighting against the norm…who is going to fight and break the norms with love and joy and inspiration? Who is going to discard fear, and doubt, and hate? Who is going to carry the load and be the superhero that he was? The answer is simple to me, ALL OF US. Decide to make the change in yourself,” he wrote.
