What a gift it is to have the ability to touch the souls of people all around the globe. Michael Jackson's music will live on forever. I have spent the last week and a half listening to every single CD and watching every music video that I own of MJ's, and I have them all!
Today's service was so very moving, I have been in tears for most of the day but when his little girl spoke at the very end that did me in....I lost my Dad when I was just four.
I have always felt a deep connection to MJ....born the same year, grew up in Southern California, raised in the same religion (Jehovah's Witness) which does not allow the celebration of birthdays, Easter, Christmas, many of the things most people remember fondly from their childhoods....so I feel that I had that in common with him. I left that religion when I was seventeen. Our youngest son is named Michael because, in part, of Michael Jackson. I grew up loving the Jackson 5 and Michael was always my favorite because we were the same age. His music and dance has touched my soul for as long as I can remember....and always will.
May he rest in peace.
