Loss of a Legend


Luke Kamps, Reporter

As many of you may know, Kobe Bean Bryant, 41, passed away on January 26, 2020. He has been a great influence, athlete, and dad.  His death has really affected millions.

Kobe Bryant was on his way to a basketball tournament, in a helicopter, with his daughter Gianna and 7 other people. The helicopter was flying in foggy conditions when the crash happened. A brush fire that was generated by the accident, caused first responders to be late.

I asked senior Lizzy Haag how she felt about the death of Kobe Bryant, and she said,”It doesn’t really concern me, but it’s tragic.”

So many people have been affected by the death of these nine people. What has happened to these people is tragic, and it is going to be hard to move on from it.  Especially knowing the world has lost another legend.
