Attending Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s emotional, surreal memorial

Personal Reflections: Covering Kobe Bryant’s memorial service from inside Staples Center was one of the great honors of my life. I’ve never cried more at a news event, but I’ve also never felt more inspired. The lessons about hard work & family are universal themes that can be applied to all of our lives.
