Long Live Michael Jackson.

Long Live Michael Jackson, Gone Too Soon.

Long Live Michael Jackson.

Gone but never forgotten.

Some people question how it’s possible to feel emotion for someone you’ve never met and a year ago today, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you I could. The day that Michael Jackson left this world was a very sad day indeed. I actually cried real tears for a man whom I never knew.


The obvious reason is that this man was one of a kind. A musical genius. But, his words spoke magnitudes to me at times in my life that were my lowest. His words were inspiring, uplifting and they gave me hope when I was rock bottom. I grew up with his music as a child but during my most difficult years, when I felt most alone, his music changed me. *Sound the violins* I know, hehe.*

But seriously.

Another reason. One word.


He cared and he cared deeply about our dying world. He cared about the less fortunate. He cared too much and that is why he often got taken advantage of. But, he made monumental changes in this world so, today I remember the loving person he was, the amazing music he shared and what he shared with me though he never knew it.

We can’t forget that he was a father, a brother & a son. He was human like us all.

I love Michael and I know my girls will too.

He is timeless.

So although he was gone too soon… He will forever be in my heart and there will always be a part of me missing. Ah, I love him.

For now, I will continue jamming to his music and remember the person that he was, rather than the star. It makes me wonder what he would have done with this oil spill and with the continued suffering in Haiti. Those things still have not gone away. Anyway, let’s all remember him for what he gave this world.

R.I.P Michael.

  1. I feel the exact same way Nancy. When he died, I just couldn't wrap my mind around it. My friend and I had our own "memorial" for him. We listened to ALL the CDs and RECORDS, watched his videos, and just remembered our youth, a time when he was the Kind of Pop, a time before maliciousness had gotten hold of people who judged what they did not understand. And the best part is that I know I will have many more of these evenings with my childhood friend, where we will remember him for who he was, not who society wanted him to be.

  2. I was at work when it happened. I'll never forget. LOL. People actually sent me txts with their condolences. I was so sad but, at least he's not suffering anymore. It's a shame, I will always remember him for the man he was & the amazing artistry he provided the world over.

    His music will live on forever. My eldest absolutely loves him too & knows all his songs. I'm always listening to his music in the van & she's been listening to it since she was in the womb, my youngest too. LOL.

    But, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who was touched by him in this way. I'm sure there are so many of us! Well, TTYL!
