In case you missed it...and just for fun

1,500 plus CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines at practice.  This is not the final routine, and definitely not a punishment, just a teaser.

What a remarkable video. Such innovation only Michael Jackson would support.

you said "leave me alone" but the media didn't listen.
they took your privacy and return it with false accusations
you were in the limelight at such a young age
making history with music and dance on the stagemore »

Michael, Michael, the man in the mirror
who made American history with his album "thriller"
you were a humanitarian with a bleeding heart
for children who were less fortunate than we are

you will always be loved my your fans
you paved the way for all the other bands
music will never be the same without you here
millions around the world as shedding tears

We will miss you, Michael! Rest In Peace.

Growing up as a 80s child that tired to moonwalk, that knew every word to every song and knew every move to Thriller, I was shocked when I heard about Michael's passing, he was such a influence to so many people of my time, his death is not just a loss for his fans, those that looked up to him but most of all his children.

His children will grow up under the eye of the public, they will be living under his shadow, they have to hear all the negativity that will spew from the mouths of the people that judged his eccentric behavior, Instead of looking at the movement Michael started with his music they keep dwelling on his CHOICE to alter his image, the tone of his skin, the strange things he did, in the end does that really matter? No it doesn't that is not who Michael was, I bet his children are the most well rounded, educated but above all else the most loved, taken care of kids allowed to have a life of their own, well as much as they could being the kids of Michael Jackson and being in the public eye.

Do I think Michael molested those boys?

NO, no doubt about that, this is the way I view it.

Michael didn't have a childhood, he grew up under the limelight and never had the chance to be a kid, he wasn't allowed to do things boys his age did, his father never spent that father/son bonding time, Michael suffered more then most people can comprehend. He opened his heart and home to these kids, he wanted so badly to give those kids all the things he never got and some people felt the need to exploit him, they knew when it came to kids he could easily be swayed and influenced to give into their demands, and sadly it did work, he was taken advantage of time and time again, over and over again by countless people and they should be ashamed for the term oil they caused in this mans life and heart.

Michael reached out many times for help only to have them fall upon deaf ears, He cried out for help and instead of getting him helped many just gave in and gave him what he wanted which could very well be the reason of Michael's untimely death.

Of course he was in pain, his heart was broken, his soul was shattered he just wanted the pain to end and thought that pain killers would put a end to the pain and suffering and in a round about way it may well of did, however at the same time his pain and suffering ended the world began to suffer for the loss of a man that changed the way people viewed each other, Michael brought every walks of life together via his music, we all found a common ground with his lyrics and dance moves, he broke down racial barriers, he moved the world to look at Africa and caused a out pour of help, many people grew and learned from Michael.

Michael is at peace now, he is free to run and be a child and do all the things he wasn't allowed to do, Michael no longer as a blind eye looking at the odd things he did, he will be greatly missed by so many, but at the same token, while we miss him who are we really missing?

Most people don't know who Michael was, they knew what the media portrayed, Michael was a actor of all times, he always painted a smile on his face while his heart was crying, he always carried himself with such grace when he really wanted to slump his shoulders and show his pain, but being raised as a child in the public's eye, this was to be considered a weakness and weakness wasn't allowed, those that were close to him, that were his true friends are the only ones that truly knew him, and from those people his children will learn who their father really was and I hope that they can see past the trashed that is talked about their father and learn to do great and wonderful things in his honor.

I hope you have found your peace Michael, I hope that your suffering has ended, I hope that your bleeding heart has healed, your shattered soul is just as beautiful as it once was. Rest In Peace knowing that you have brought us all back together again. We love you.

Whether famous or non-famous, we all have a few demons lurking in our closets that we are not very proud of. It doesn't make us bad or uncaring people. Michael Jackson was a "STAR" in his own right, and in the eyes of so many young and old. He had his childhood stripped from him, so he was living the life that he never had a chance to experience as a child. He is no longer here to speak for himself, so let's forget about the Child Molestation cases and concentrate on Michael Jackson the person, the entertainer and most importantly a child of GOD. It has always been said, if you don't have something nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all, but we all seem to make that mistake. Because of who he was and so many like him, he kept the media with a job. Please let us show love, respect and dignity to Michael Jackson and his family at this most difficult time.

there are many short segments of fans grieving and honoring Michael Jackson from the USA and many foreign countries.

what an opportunity for a forward thinking and imaginative network like CNN to collect these segments and use them to prepare a special tribute day.

the program would be a wonderful addition to weekend viewing. how great if DVDs were made and given to viewers for a shipping and handling fee. 2 mementos in 1. CNN & Micheal Jackson.

(it would sure save me a lot of time surfing and compiling my own!)
