The world will never be the same again with the passing away of former NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and three others in a helicopter crash earlier today. What we are experiencing now is everyone paying tribute to his career as one of the best NBA players ever and to his life.
Tribute is giving honor to someone for what they have done to positively impact the lives of others while they lived. During the tribute, previous faults and flaws are overlooked. As we reflect upon the life of Kobe Bryant, I hope that we are reminded to overlook the faults of others that are living with us now. We will continue to experience new beginnings as long as we continue to pay tribute to those who went before us and to those who are with us now.
