So Long......

I was working and listening to the radio when the DJ said, "Michael Jackson suffered cardiac arrest, and now it was confirmed that he has died..." Every single person including all the customers in the salon gasped at the same time. And the disbrief sunk in.....I grew up listening to Michael Jackson's music. My dad had all his albums including Jackson 5. His talent was beyond anybody's ability - the way he sang, danced, and performed were all so magical. Nobody can dance like Michael, even Justin Timberlake wants to dance like him, but I know he can't even do it. Michael was that special....

Then his fame ruined him. He became a clown where people made fun of him. Although I knew he did go through trauma of some sort, I had never made fun of him. Yes, there were times his actions raised my eyebrows. But to me, he was my King of Pop. Every day, Ju Ju, Soapy and I dance to his songs as JT looks over. I'm not kidding. I want my daugters to grow up listening to his music.

I still remember going to his "HISTORY" tour concert in Honolulu Stadium on Oahu, Hawaii, a little over 10 years ago. I could not believe the rush I felt, and when he showed up on stage, I screamed like crazy. His presence was undescribable...... And it was the most memorable live concert I've ever been to. The next day, when I opened the newspaper, there was message from Michael, thanking the people of Hawaii. I knew he was a nice human being, a caring and a loving man who was lost in his time.

In a way, I feel his life was sad and tragic - I wonder if he ever felt true happiness. The emptiness he felt for all these years consumed by fame must be terrible. But I hope he knew there were many fans who adored and loved him - I hope he didn't feel alone...Thanks so much Michael, for all the great music and magical dance - we will miss you so much...

P.S. Rest in Peace, Sara Fawcett..... You fought with grace and courage.....

I can't believe it.

I've been watching a bunch of news coverages all day since my sis sent me a text.

My thoughts and prayers are with his two children.

I always felt for him too. Any trouble celebrities always make me sad, mainly because we all think they are permanent, almost fake, and so many can't empathize with them. I just hope that his kids will grow up knowing that their Dad was loved by many fans all over the world.
