Thank You for the Music

I refuse to remember the laughingstock he became.

I refuse to remember the blanket covered baby, nicknamed Blanket, dangling over a balcony.

I refuse to remember the pedophile's oddly misshapen nose in court.

I refuse to remember the bankrupt whiner swearing he would never return to this country which had treated him so badly.

I am going to remember the music.

The #1 selling album of all time.

The most amazing, show stopping video of all time.

The voice.

The baby faced singer leading his 4 older brothers on stage.

The moonwalk.

This is the Michael Jackson I want to, and will, remember. The boy. The voice. The music.

Thank you for the music, Michael. May your rest be ever so much more peaceful than your life ever was. My thoughts are with your children in this awful time in their lives. RIP

He caught so much crap and it's a shame just how hard the world was on him. I do think he was a troubled soul. How could he not with the childhood he had and all? However, I don't think that he was as much of a freak as the world made him out to be, nor do I think he had a mean bone in his body. So, I'd like to remember him for the musical genius that he was, for the donations he made, the causes he spoke for, and for his moonwalk.

Well said D. To me, it was the constant plastic surgery that turned me off.
But he was an incredible entertainer and, yes, I do believe he had a kind and loving soul.
