Remembering Michael.... Three Years Gone...






Three years gone. It does not seem possible, yet the memories, the videos, and the music lives on.

Michael was never one, who held public office, nor was he born to royalty, and yet there was a moment in time when Michael Jackson ruled the earth.

Three years gone. It does not seem possible, yet time moves on for some of us. I wanted to take a moment to bow my head and thank The Creator for giving us the gift of such a talented, sensitive, and charismatic dynamo as Michael Jackson.

He lived. He entertained. He thrilled us. He disappointed us. He mystified us. He confounded us. He hypnotized us. He changed the shape of our dreams… and then… like some quickly moving comet, a supernova charging through space, his blazing light burned out too soon.

Three years gone.

It does not seem possible.

Rest In Peace, Michael Joe Jackson

That says it all, Lin.

He was indeed a gifted, talented and creative man. His contributions to our popular culture are immeasurable and he will be missed. Great remembrance.

I miss him too. I still have a hard time listening to his music, he touched me deeply with his compassion and his talent. He is still so loved and missed.

RIP Michael. The true essence of you is still with us. Only your weary body is gone.

Reggie said...

Wow has it been three years?!? I didn't realize that it had been that long. So the children have been safe for three years now huh?!?

@ Sabah: Thanks son. I checked my email & there's no recent mail fromn you.


@ Val: Thanks, Val. I tried to sum up MJ's impact on the culture by using an economy of language.

@ Miz: Thanks muchly, Sista Pen.
:-)



@ Roger: Thanks, man. I like your comment as well. It's all true.


@ greeneyes: I've gotten to the point where I can now listen to his music, especially his latter work. But video from his early childhood still leaves me feeling melancholy.



@ A.M.: Well stated. And I agree. Only the physical MJ has left us


@ Reggie: Whoa! That's pretty dark, yo. Ever wonder why the overly-aggressive father of MJ's first accuser later committed suicide?

*ponder*

Reggie said...

Notice how easy it was for you to use the term "first accuser"?!?

Moanerplicity said...

@Reggie:

Yup, after the FIRST accuser was paid, OTHERS thought they'd lie & get paid as well. However, the second time Michael refused to pay, it went to trial, ended in a "not guilty" verdict & MJ was exonerated of all charges.

Not claiming he was perfect, but because of his oddness & love of children, the greedy opportunists succeeded in wrecking his rep, his legacy & his life.

But not everyone believes the hype.
