It’s been two weeks since Kobe Bryant tragically lost his life alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna as well as seven others.
The tributes of honor and love not only continue in the United States, but all over the world.
His legacy certainly transcended the barriers of basketball and sports and that was evident when a Sikh Temple held a prayer for the player and the rest of the victims of the crash. They did so while wearing Kobe shirts.
“Meena Dhesi Sanghera, a member of the congregation said Sikhs believe everyone, regardless of their background, is part of one community and this memorial honors that.
Although all nine victims were honored, Kobe has a special place in everyone’s hearts.
“Kobe, as well as being a basketball legend touched many hearts in every community, and we have a lot of support and a lot of our children are big fans of his,” said Sanghera. “As well as the fact that this was such a tragic loss.”
Kobe, Gianna, and the other seven victims will be remembered during a public memorial event that will be held February 24th at Staples Center.
