Default RIP Chadwick Boseman dies at 43

Boseman, who portrayed Jackie Robinson in the movie '42' died Friday of colon cancer. He also portrayed the first African-American Super-Hero in 'Black Panther.

He was 43 years old...died on the day honoring the man he so brilliantly portrayed.

Fate is Cruel....Life is Precious.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

Extremely Tragic. Loved him as Jackie Robinson, and as Black Panther in the Marvel Films. It was pretty shocking to learn how under wraps this was kept. Apparently he had been battling cancer for four years, which meant his tenure as Black Panther was filmed entirely while he was fighting cancer.

Only 43 too. So young, with so much life left in front of him. Certainly my thoughts and prayers are with his family. I've read that he was very close with his parents. I cannot imagine what they must be feeling like, as the loss of a child no matter how old must be devastating.

The year has been rough as it is. Sports and Entertainment have been one of the few things to keep many people going. Another tragedy to add to the long list already.

I'm surprised how great he looked despite being so sick.

He posted a video, since pulled down, back in April I believe. He was gaunt looking. Face sunken in, very skinny. I know some fans were concerned but rationalized it as him preparing for a role. Actors weights certainly fluctuate a lot nowadays depending on the type of role they're accepting.

I was speaking to my doctor the other day, who also happens to be a close family friend, He recommended to start getting A Colonoscopy starting at age 30. Will probably be doing that seeing such a young person succumb to cancer.

But he was battling colon cancer for four years! And during that time, he made so many movies and looked great. That's what I was trying to say.

Well listen to your doctor of course, but I believe standard practice absent some strong family history is to get your first one at age 50.
