Exclusive OP-ED By Tolson Banner

The “hush” always descends upon us unannounced. Like the King of Pop. Like the Queen 
of Soul. Just like Prince. It transforms time into a quivering moment and shakes us.

This is where the unthinkable becomes the real-life tragedy. Our feelings tremble as we attempt to come to grips with the fragility of life.

In this space we slow down our speed for living to heartbeat to heartbeat. We gasp for air. The recurring news confirm what we had prayed and hoped to be untrue: Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi and seven others killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, CA. (Names of the other deceased passengers were not released at press time).
