If you have nothing beautiful to say, don’t speak. Let people mourn the loss of a fellow human being in peace.

Fatoumatta: if you have nothing beautiful to say, don’t speak. Let people mourn the loss of a fellow human being in peace.
It’s not time to debate over religion and politics, past-mistakes, etc. Just be human for a moment. I don’t get it if you have to dictate whose death we mourn. People get connected to individual personalities, particularly in sports and entertainment. When the whole world mourned Mohammed Ali and Michael Jackson, were they the only people that died that period? So, if people expressed grief over the death of Kobe Byrant and you accused them of not showing similar pain to fatalities in the Gambia, l don’t get it. Grief is personal. For instance, l still can’t forget the day Kobe Bryant got off the hook of sexual molestation charges. I can still picture his reaction in my mind. Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant were my two major attractions to basketball. So, when people show specific emotion towards a tragedy, it’s not in your place to start accusing them of hypocrisy. You don’t choose for people to mourn or how they express grief. Allow individuals the liberty to express their emotions. It’s like asking why some of us celebrated the come back of Tiger Woods after years of set again, and you ask if there were no similar come backstories in the Gambia. And you have shown appreciation of people celebrating your Birthday with glee.
