I know Kobe Bryant is and always will be a basketball legend, but he did so much to elevate the idea of being a girl dad. He made it something to honor and be proud of. That alone changes lives. It changes men. It changes how girls grow up. @PSchwarzenegger https://t.co/AhLY3vTOKv

People are remembering Kobe Bryant on the anniversary of his death. Kobe respected those who served their country. When the Lakers were in Hawaii for a 2005 exhibition game, he fulfilled a request to be a witness at a sailor’s reenlistment. Kobe said he was honored to be asked. pic.twitter.com/mKHhk5PBqc
