A letter from a fan of the late basketball player Kobe Bryant circulating on networks has touched the sensibilities of thousands of users. In the letter, the author addresses a few words of encouragement to Vanessa Bryant, Bryant's widow and Gianna's mother, both of whom died in a plane crash on Sunday.
Followers of the athlete around the world have expressed their condolences and shared the publication on different social platforms joining a chain of prayer for the Bryant family.
“The lump in the throat and the discomfort in the bowels does not end. As a mother, as a wife … this is inconceivable. What sadness … ", is the message that accompanies the image on the Instagram account of the user kenara
The emotional letter written in English reads the following:
"She can't pray right now, so let's pray for her.
She has no strength right now, so let's hug her.
She has no words right now, so let's let her sob and be her voice.
She doesn't understand right now, so let's remember that He is sovereign.
She has no memories of what she's feeling, so let's show her love.
She is surrounded by onlookers, so let's be her private warriors.
She did not lose a recognized character in the world, she lost her husband and daughter.
Women, wives, mothers … let's unite for Vanessa Bryant.
Please, let us fight in spirit for her.
Let's fight as if we know that the road ahead will be hard.
Let's fight as if his life was not going to be the same.
Let's fight as if we know that the enemy wants to take your mind.
Fight with purpose… fight!”
