Yet Another Icon

What is going on today? Yet another American Icon has left us. Just a few short hours ago, Michael Jackson passed away from a heart attack.

Say what you will about his eccentric lifestyle, the man had talent. His music spanned the ages and still rings in our ears.

The shocking news is quite a jolt to those who grew up with him and his amazing music.

Hey Mom
It is sad to hear that both MJ and Farrah passed away today. I hope they both have now found peace!

Many losses this week... Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and now MJ. Prayers for all who are grieving.

The Mother said...

He may have been talented, but he was a child molester. Sorry, I don't have much sympathy. Not this time.

Mom said...

Ed McMahon? I missed that one. Geez

To The Mother:

While I understand you sentiments, Jackson was acquitted of those charges in a court of law. Whether he did or didn't, he will be judged by a higher power. His friends and family will still grieve over his death, as will most of the country.

It is a true test of the human soul to give sympathy and concern to others, even when we feel the sympathy and concern is undeserved.

Yep, it was quite a day. There's a lot of fiction that I can create from it all. Now... to get to it!

My ex-classmate was the music lover.
One day he invited me to his house and I discovered that he likes Michael Jackson'songs. That was the first time that I listened his songs. I found that he was awesome especially his stylish leg movement.
He was the icon in music world even his death.
Let's wish him rest in peace.
Happy blogging.
