On Saturday I decided to get my 8701 Usher album out for old times sake! I having been listening to it on repeat all weekend and remembering the good times it brought me as a teenager. But today I found out some awful news involving Usher's family. On Sunday, Usher's step-son Kyle had a tragic accident and has been left brain-dead.
Kyle was sitting in an inner tube on Lake Lanier when a man accidentally rode his jet-ski into it striking Kyle in the head and leaving him unconscious. Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Blair have been by his hospital bedside and are urging everybody to pray for him.
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith posted on facebook: July 8th... yesterday was the day I was celebrating the birth of my son only to find out that Usher and Tameka were dealing with the tragedy of their son. In honor of this precious child...tell someone today you forgive them, tell someone today how much you love them, tell someone today you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Thank someone for being such a good friend to you, thank someone for having stood by you when no one else did. Take the time to appreciate life today because NOTHING... is promised. Our prayers are yours Usher, Tameka and to all those who have put love into your son. To Blair's family...our prayers are with you as well. Be strong. J
Couldn't have said it better myself Jada. My prayers go out to them and anybody else going through a difficult situation like this.
