The King of Pop Michael Jackson 1958-2009
The news stunned me,just like everyone else.Michael Jackson is dead at 50.I grew up with Michael Jackson, not in a literal sense but in a figurative sense.I remember being in the first grade ,and all the kids at my elementary school singing "I want you back" and the boys pretending to be Michael or Marlon. All the girls in my 3rd grade class wanted to be Michael Jackson's girlfriend.As a consequence most of the boys either wanted to be Michael or was jealous of him.
Years later as I graduated from high school and was "Off the wall" and began my adulthood as a"Thriller ",the music of Michael Jackson was there.From good times and bad,you could count on Michael Jackson to entertain you.
My oldest child is approaching 30 years old ,and she has never known a day when Michael was not newsworthy or on the sound tracks of the time.Michael Jackson has passed ,and he now belongs to the ages, his music will never pass. Michael Jackson ,we all,” Remember the time",thanks for the memories.
