Michael Jackson R.I.P.

26 06 2009

When I first learned of this tragic event I couldn’t believe it, I stood in shock, trying to fully understand the situation.

“He can’t be dead!”, I said to myself, “This can’t be true.”

Sadly, the news was right. I was terrified. Michael Jackson had a massive influence on me since I was a little kid, mesmerized by his dancing moves on stage, trying to imitate his Moonwalk with my friends at school. We bought almost every single album he produced, every video and concert DVDs we could find. Learned many of his songs by heart, and danced to them in celebration…

There’s so much to say about this man. Reasons why I loved him are described in an earlier post. However, I have to say, he didn’t deserve to die like this. He didn’t deserve to suffer throughout his life. He’s had a terrible childhood, producing music since the age of 11. His actions reflected those of the inner child living inside of him.

Michael Jackson was a legend on all frontiers, a wonderful artist, and an inspiring human being. His unexpected death saddens me, along with millions of fans all around the world. My sympathies to his family, friends and fellow fans.

Rest in peace Michael Jackson, your music shall live with us for generations to come. Thank you for everything you did, you’ll never be forgotten.
