Michael Jackson RIP

Yesterday at a approx 5:20 pm, i came home from grocery shopping, left everything unpacked in the kitchen, i dont know why, but i checked my twitter from my phone real quick. What caught my eye was a twit from cnn saying that Michael Jackson has been rushed to the hospital, suffering from a cardiac arrest. I stopped, prayed and told myself he's gunna pull through, he;s f$%#ing Michael Jackson, he still has this tour, its not his time. Like everyone in the world, i sat glued to cnn waiting to hear what's going on. I didnt think what the outcome came to be was actually going to happen. It's crazy because at this moment in time, everyone around the world were connected, a man whom we all grew up with, literally, was facing his curtain call. I guess i can say we were sorta waiting for an encore, we weren't ready for the end yet. After hearing the official statement from CNN i flipped to bet where they already began paying their respect to THE pop Music icon. Then i cracked. I began to cry but had realized that now we have to celebrate his amazing accomplishments, life, and him as a person. Tears of sadness became tears of joy by what this man has done. I do believe that at times the media treated him like shit, he was misunderstood, but now he is really at peace. No matter what age or race, he left everyone with great music and memories. I can honestly admit that like many others, i made and laughed at jokes about who he became in recent times. I am apologizing and i think other people in the world should because what we forgot was that this man was human. He had feelings and like any other human he lives through love. It's just a shame that we all couldn't apologize while he was here. My prayers go out to his family and the music artists today that will try to top what he has done.

ah yes, Michael Jackson. I remember every Christmas (or any occasion for a family gathering), they would put Mike on the stereo and would watch me to dance like him, doin ALL the moves, spins, moonwalks, finger snaps, kicks, all dat. Fam called me Little Michael. Good memories. I'm proud to say he was a big part of my childhood, along with eatin cereal in my draws in front of the TV watchin morning cartoons on Saturday. Monumental and TIMELESS entertainment and music from a legendary icon who touched the WORLD. It's obvious, there will never be anyone like MJ.

ps: Smooth Criminal was my favorite video of all time. I had the whole MJ movie with the whole acting shindig and everything. nostalgia hits hard.
