The man is gone and I think it is not the time to be judging him but to now let him rest in peace. What went on during his time on earth is not for us to judge but that of our Lord and maker for He is the judge over us all. My condolences and prayers now go out to all his loved ones, may God be with them all in the days and weeks to come.


Remember God is the judge over us all!


Blessings, Pattieanne51

Well, if the weeping fans will allow us to do that....I suspect we'll be hearing about Michael Jackson "sightings" for the next 100 years.   The 24 hr cable news channels have been pretty much all Michael/all the time, running on 18 hrs now, pushing anybody else who's died, like people in Iraq, Afghansitan, Pakistan, Iran, America right off the news.   Kind of hard to overlook some of the controversies in the face of that.


At any rate, his dangling his baby by one arm (the baby's one arm, that is) over a highrise balconey was pretty much the last straw, and I am forever glad he was not allowed to buy the remains of the Elephant Man.  I fully expected him to be allowed to get away with that. way back when.

When the news reported they found Michael not breathing, I figured it was because his nose finally fell off.  Maybe they'll auction it off on eBay.


Whack-o-Jack-o.  I mean, I'm sorry he's dead.  But he was one odd-duck.

He was an odd duck, but I have to admire anyone who is extremely talented at whatever they do.  He was an incredibly talented entertainer.  I find music to be a very powerful artfrom...it can improve your mood, help you through an emotional situation, send a message to someone that you can't find the words to send.  I've never been musically inclined myself...I wouldn't subject my worst enemy to having to listen to me sing!  Tongue out  Maybe that's wy I have so much admiration for people who can...and he didn't just sing...he had a unique way of entertaining people with his music and dance moves that made him a very rich & famous man.  It's too bad he had such turmoil in his life, self-created or not.  It's also too bad he obviously didn't know how to handle the money...since I hear he died about 400 million in debt.

Our need to learn should always outweigh our need to be right

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren't so busy denying them.

The moon walk was amazing.


I remember trying so hard to do it, but failing miserably.

I've been wondering what will happen to Jackson's three children.  Here is one article about this issue.

Michael's children below.  IMO if Jackson were guilty of abusing children then his own would have been the easiest victims.  With time the truth will come out.  Michael is said to have been a devoted dad.

Let us rather mourn for those mostly unnamed souls who lost their lives bravely defying the Islamic dicatatorship in Iran than a self-indulgent pop star

I just read on a Google News report that Jackson may well have died from an overdose of Demerol to which he was addicted. Apparently he was also addicted to Oxycotin. If the story is accurate the pieces are falling into place.

Change the "rather" to "also", and include those who have lost their lives to illness, accident, or in any other way.  ALL deaths are sad, if not tragic, and ALL souls deserve to be mourned, even rich rock stars.

The good is oft interred with their bones;"

Every human is flawed.  Give the endless condemnation a rest, and remember and pray for all grieving families and friends.

Let us also mourn for all those Iraqi dead and permanently injured because of us, more than 200 dead in just this week alone, and in the hundreds of thousands, if not a million+, by now.


Let us also mourn for all those civilians killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan, by American drones, and let us also mourn for those Muslims who died from the harsh treatment they received from their American captors, in our Gitmos.


IMO, Americans haven't even begun to mourn those unnecessary deaths yet, and it's going on more than 7 years now.
