Michael Jackson’s talent and creative genius had a unifying message to the world based on hope, kindness, and love. It is sad that a man who gave so much to the world endured so much loneliness and cruelty. Where were all the celebrities when Michael Jackson needed comfort and support during difficult times? Why didn’t they speak out on his behalf when he was alive?We celebrate Michael Jackson…his talents, his love of life, his charitable ways….Michael Jackson was our friend…a friend to the entire world.Thank you Michael for being “you”. You were and will be loved by the world…
