Ex-UCLA Basketball Player Billy Knight Shares Tragic Goodbye Video, Asking God To Forgive Him.
Suffering is one of the consequences of living in a fallen world, so we shouldn't be surprised when we witness something like this.
On July 8, former UCLA Player Billy Knight posted a video to YouTube titled "Billy Knight I am sorry Lord," which he began by saying, "This is probably my last message on earth. Y'all mental illness is a real thing". The black community is the most under served, not because it doesn't exist, but because of stigma and misinformation about what mental illness is.
Anyhow he went on to talk about his struggles. "I isolated myself from my family members," Knight said. "I isolated myself from my friends, and that's not something you should do. If this happens, you probably have a mental illness. Mental illness is serious. I hear voices in my head constantly, and I don't know where they come from. I just asked God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done." The former player also admitted to denying help when people told him to seek it and spoke about how he felt "like there's no hope.
