In Memory of Tupac

Tupac answered suffering in part by acts of care and compassion. Publicist Karen Lee says that on Tupac’s first promotional tour in Washington, D.C., he made media appearance and visited schools “because little kids were just totally mesmerized by him.” As the limousine whisked them to the airport to travel to the next stop, Tupac watched a television report about a young black girl who had been attacked by two pit bulls and rushed to the hospital. “He has the limo driver turn around,” Lee says, “and we go to the hospital. He doesn’t know these people.” When Tupac arrived at the hospital, the girl was in surgery. I just wanted to come and let you know that I’m praying for you, Tupac told her parents, who were overwhelmed by the gesture. The girl survived. “The mother and child moved to Atlanta and became very, very, close with Tupac’s family. But nobody talked about that.” By most accounts, Tupac liked it that way. Cassandra Butcher tells a similar story of Tupac’s reading about a gravely ill child while he was on a plane trip and demanding to be taken to the hospital before fulfilling any press obligations. “But he didn’t want any press. He felt very strongly about that.”
