Michael Jackson Dies

Today Michael Jackson died. Reports state he suffered cardiac arrest at his home, and was pronounced dead upon his arrival at UCLA Medical Center. Michael Jackson was and will always be a LEGEND. The memories his music created and was a part of growing up will forever be with me. From listening to Thriller and Bad with my father as a little girl. Watching his videos and copying the dance moves, I never did master the moonwalk. I am saddened to hear of his death.

I don't agree with much of what he's done in his personal life, and who am I to judge. But his talent surpasses whatever internal struggles he faced throughout his life. He was indeed a musical visionary, and multi-talented individual without a doubt. There will never be another performer like him. There will never be another musical genius like him. He is the single most famous human being, no corner of the world is there any doubt who Michael Jackson is. He has accomplished what others merely dream of. Its easy to look at the bizzare behavior and court trials, its easy to look and his ever changing physical features, but what about his great humanitiran efforts. Lest we forget all the good he's done.

I pray for his family, that they have peace during this difficult time. He will forever be missed.
