  1. 0:29 Yes, everyone on the team is so sad :))) Most of the people are laughing and joking around. The words of the reporter does not match the reality at all… ahahahahahahah
    0:31 OOO "memorial grown EXPONENTIALLY"… what a FANCY word, wow so exaggerating all the time the media reporters.
    0:52 "Moment of RAW motion" woooooooooooooow such a wording there :)))

  2. Ironies in numbers and when the world of nature speaks to us. Kobe Bryant’s helicopter was built in 1991. That was the same year the USSR became Russia and the FDICIA 1991 was sponsored by a Michigan senator in the USA.

    The sheep are being sheered and butchered around the world. Even the helicopter number speaks. S76B That is a riddle for some but not for me.

    I am left in ruins like a maimed sheep after working in military and in finance for top government banking. I electrically insulated myself by subconscious intuition when co workers who were billion dollar auditors were being electrically stunned. I missed the call to report the robbery and deaths because I was knocked unconscious repeatedly from 11 11 1999 and was brain punctured and burned with brain stroke symptoms uncompensated . I was Until the end of the year in California and in dc area in 1999.

    Those numbers 432001 when the audit caught a thief and I was set up to be butchered. I was maimed and jailed.

    I have always thought the successful like Bryant have much more motion in life and therefore the probability of death is greater. I used to volunteer for close calls in employment. Death to me is where there is no melancholy which is a life time affliction for many.

    The sound of music the Aberdeen Washington rain drops dripping on a tin pan and my brother Kurt the year 1991 the helicopter in the distance.

    I may approach the flame

  3. When I was a juvenile delinquent between 1996 and 1999 Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan and their basketball games got me through that time that's the only thing they would let us do was watch those games once a week we would watch each set of games east and west, and I'll tell you what, I will never forget…now as a proud father with a son that is somewhat of a basketball prodigy in his own right, I have to say that I am heartbroken. I'm so glad I changed from those ways, and I'm so proud of Kobe and his accomplishments, and I'm proud of all of the people who passed because they were all great people, great parents, coaching their kids just like I coach mine as an assistant. Bless their souls
