    Tribute to Michael Jackson

    Since Michael Jackson passed away, it has taken me some time to be able to come to terms with his passing. I have idolized him since childhood. My younger sister and I just absolutely adored him. He was so remarkably talented, so loving, so giving, so inspiring, and most of all a true genius. It has saddened me so to see and hear all the negativity he and his family has endured since his passing. He tried so hard to change the world through his music but it is evident it has been ignored (some people just don’t get it). What this man tried to do to change this cruel world is remarkable. He should be commended on the highest level. Michael has given so much of himself, to so many, but that’s not what you hear. Let talk about that!

    What a beautiful and blessed soul taken from us way too soon!

    The world has lost the true meaning of respect when someone loses a love one. There are some things that need not be discussed during the time of sorrow for a family that has lost a love one that has meant so much to so many, whether they are famous or not. It is a matter of respect for the family and the individual that has lost their life. What Michael accomplished throughout his lifetime which cannot be denied, he and his family deserved a lot more respect since his passing. This is a very difficult time for his family and the last thing they need is to hear all the negativity. My heart goes out to his entire family.

    Michael, I love you, respect you and I really appreciate everything you tried to do through your music and your loving and giving heart. And yes, I get it and I pray that when people really truly listen to what you are trying to say through your music, they will get message too. What a beautiful world this will be when that happens!

    I will always remember the good you gave too so many. Rest in peace knowing that you are and will always be loved and remembered by so many. The world will miss you so very much!

    My heart is broken into a million pieces.
