Hana Kimura lit up every room she walked in. She was sunshine and one of the most selfless human beings I‘ve ever met. I’m one of the lucky ones who got to experience first hand how special and loving of a person she is. Hearts are hurting right now. I’m hurting right now💔Rip🙏

Distraught. I don’t even know what to say or feel. Numb. I can’t express it. RIP Hana Kimura. Such a wonderful human being. The gaijin helper. All the potential. A beautiful soul. Kind. I just can’t even put in to fucking words how upsetting this is. I hope you found peace 🙏🏻

Please, let’s ALL use social media for good! BLOCK and DELETE any page or person that brings you any pain, anger or insecurity. Follow people or pages that motivate you, that inspire you and that make you happy. I will not tolerate hate & bullying! I wish I could do more.

There is nothing I can say or do that will make this hurt less or make sense.
I’m lucky I got to know you. I’m glad I got the chance to be on your team.
Actions and words mean something. For better or for worse.
