My Childhood Idols -Hmmm...Who Do You Think?

Who do you think? What is there to NOT admire about Michael Jackson? From the moment I first saw him, I wouldn't say it was idolization, but true love. He was my first TRUE love. But I must say the thing that blows me away about him most is his faith in God. It must have been strong to get through the torture of his life.

A Sad Day in Pop Culture History- The Death of Michael Jackson

Anyone that knows me, knows my answer to the question.

Michael Jackson's death was not only surprising and shocking, but also eye-opening. I still speak of him in the present tense. He is not dead in my heart and mind, because he left such a legacy of work and images, that he will always be alive for me.

As a generation before with Elvis Presley, and John Lennon, this one was probably more profound, because Michael bridged people of different races, ages, and cultures. He is truly THE most famous person in the world.

With his death, I feel, has come an understanding of the man, and the world now is appreciating him for what he is...The greatest enterainer. Many may argue with that statement, but the amount of people that agree, outweigh them.
