I guess the best is yet to come
Corbin, you never can tell how things play out in the months or years to come.  If Congress can propose a Michael Jackson day, it won't be surprising for him to be honored in that way.  I think his legacy and his memory of what he did while he was here will be duly noted.  DiamondLife

Re: Re: Re: I loved Michael Jackson's singing, but I can't understand what it takes to

No, no Corbin.  I have had numerous conversations with those in the arts about the responsibilty they have to society.  Those who are artists, musicians, doctors, teachers, lawyers still have a resonsibility to society and to the children who watch them; no they don't get a pass to do what they want without consequences.

Hands down, if he was not as important as some want to believe then why do so many people support him?  Why do so many legends, legends' children, common people, many professionals support him? The answer is regardless, of what his last years may have been he still is a phenomenal person.  With his contributions to society, he owned up to the challege of making this world a better place.  He answered the call to say yes, to helping those who cannot help themselves.  Also his music changed and knocked down barriers for so many people across the United States and later across the globe.

Truly appreciate your reading my thought

I am in the process of posting his citations on his humanitarian efforts, so keep your eyes posted.  Unfortunately, for him a good many people did not want him to succeed but hands down he was touched; touched by God.  For those who do extraordinary things or contribution to the world in extraordinary ways do not go without tragic moments as well.  As a musical genius who transcended generations and racial lines, who can explain that?  It is like some politicians are furious with all the coverage about his memorial in CA tomorrow or his life.  They say, we should get over it.  For me, seeing coverage reminds me of how important he is in American history and the world.  It is unfortunate that there was such tragedy but overtime I hear his music, I smile.  Every time I hear his music, my hearts jumps for joy.  My daughter and I can sing to the same music without it being demeaning to women or people in general.  Wow, is all I can say. 

The citations are coming.

Hmmmm??? Isn't  that what is known as enabling?   Kind of like the Catholic Church settling out of court to keep from going to court?  Reassigning priests to new parishes and a fresh supply?  This is why celebrities get away with so much....if you can entertain,  it overrides the underlying evils?

I was touched by the sincerity of this post. Could you I wonder tell us a little more about MJ's humanitarian contribution?

 He was acquitted for child molestation charges, so I cannot understand why so many people continue to insinuate that he was not innocent.

Hey Diamond! Love your handle! I put my writing in WordPerfect and then copy and paste to my blog! It can be a nightmare when first learning this site! Many have lost posts just prior to getting ready to put them out! If you need help with anything just give me a holler and I will do what I can! If I don't know I usually can find someone here! sam

Yes, you are right!! We can't worry about accusations but keep our eye on what really matters.  I will say this, hearing his music always makes me smile.

Superb talent - Indeed

Hi Sam,

Thank you for viewing my blog.  I am new to this and just lost 3 paragraphs of writing but I am going to try not to fret! Yikes.  You know I did not know that MTV had to be forced to play Thriller, in 1983! Never heard this before his death and I hope you are right.  I hope that all of the negative publicity is finally put to rest and let his music shine on.  I heard MJ say that in order to be immortal, you have to leave something here on that can lived on forever.  He has done that by staying true to his music and not letting anyone keep him being great.  I guess when we think about it, we all have a responsibility to make a way to make this place better for us all.  Lastly, I have loved to write all my life but with the loss of Michael Jackson I have been inspired to write again.  Thanks for the welcome.  DiamondLife

forget some of the things he was accused of...not knowing whether they were true or false accusations.

You are correct that he was a humanitarian! He didn't get that much publicity, which is very unfortunate! No doubt he was a superb talent! I wish he would have stayed away from the cosmetic surgery and realized he was a dashing black man in his own right! I adore the pictures of him growing up! So angelic and innocent looking! He has made his mark, and over time the awful things will fade and he will be recognized for the talent that he was! Welcome to Blogit! sam
