Remembering Michael

Exactly one year ago today, Michael Jackson was here and a second later he was gone. And now that he is gone, billions of people, including me, are now realizing how amazing he really was.

I admire him for his genius, intelligence and talent. For his integrity, perseverance and will. But I mostly admire Michael for his heart. For the love he had for his family, children, fans and for the world. Michael donated millions of dollars to charity. His second world tour, The Dangerous Tour, raised about $125 million. All of the profits were donated to various charities.

But Michael's reputation was destroyed over the years. Reasons? Tabloids, lies, jealous and greedy people. But look at the picture above. That's the kind of person Michael was. But this Michael wasn't known as well as the Michael seen in the magazines and looked at in a different way than I see him. There were in fact, many things, good things, that Michael did but the press didn't cover. He visited children's hospitals. He brought toys and music, games, puzzles, and he'd stay for hours. Michael was extremely busy, but these children mattered to him. Many were dying.

Then came the charges. They were all lies. Everyone who bothers to research the truth now knows this.

And if you watch something like Michael Jackson's "This is It," you'll see the real side of Michael. And as Kenny Ortega said, Michael Jackson was like an angel walking the planet.

So today is a day of remembering Michael and all of the good he did for the world. Join me, or not. But I'll always love him.

We will always miss you and love you Michael. May God bless you forever, for he truly knows your heart.

I was just watching your youtubes and landed on your blog. I hadn't realized that it has been a year since Michael's passing. It seems like only yesterday. He's still close to my heart, he's a real Angel as you said! I first fell in love with his music when I was 8 - I am now 26 :) I honestly don't think I'll find music more wonderful than his! Keep writing, singing and loving.
