Lori - Justice for Michael   June 24th, 2010 5:35 pm ET

How sweet! They were brilliant. Michael always loved and mentored children. This is a fitting tribute. I still cannot believe that we are speaking of Michael in the past tense. *sigh* Gone too soon and it still feels like a fresh pain.


"Pixie Dust "   June 24th, 2010 5:51 pm ET

Absolutely beautiful.It is so nice to see the younger generations enjoying Michael's music. to.(Smiles) to all of yous.

missin MJ   June 24th, 2010 5:53 pm ET

What a beautiful job these children did. Yes, Michael would love this.

Judie   June 24th, 2010 5:56 pm ET

If ~Michael~ were here he would have a smile on him from ear to ear.
He loved and cared for children all over the world,and all over the world we all loved and cared for him.

Judie   June 24th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

A year has gone by like no other
his presence is missed just like a brother
he was sent from the heavens above
oh how we miss the man with the glove
he changed us all as we began to look
he gave and gave and they just took
he is at peace now I am sure in my heart
at home in heaven never to part
know that we love you and will always fight
for truth and justice till all is right
be happy sweet one and you will see
you changed our world for you and me

In Loving Memory of ~Michael Jackson ~

When I see children, I see the face of God. That's why I love them so much. That's what I see.
Michael Jackson

rest in peace sweet one.

christine canada   June 24th, 2010 10:17 pm ET

It's awesome to see many of the original bloggers posting to celebrate Michael's life and art and of course to mourn his passing.

I'm not a fan of Oprah's – didn't appreciate her focus on herself and some of her rude questions to Michael- but I felt compelled, once again, to "see" Michael. His grace, his laughter, his honesty, his gentleness, his vulnerability, his talent just mesmerized me. He simply exuded LOVE.

babycarie   June 24th, 2010 10:17 pm ET

MaryRM June 24th, 2010 9:56 pm ET
Hello Mary.
Michael was so right...when I look at BC I see the face of God.
Just knowing that Michael is in heaven with my brother and all the children gone too soon, it brings a sense of serene comfort.
This world was not good enough for such a sweet and gentle and shy and unique human being. We were LUCKY to have been blessed with him, his gifts, and I hope we all continue to be his voice.

shell517nj   June 24th, 2010 10:29 pm ET

Beautiful. Through his music MJ will live forever. Long live the King of Pop!

patty anderson   June 24th, 2010 10:30 pm ET

Coco, MaryRm so nice to see you. Seen any red lately Coco.

Carie how is the little angel doing?

Wow this seems almost like the first few days last year. A blog every 2 hours...
Can't we just skip over June 25th and just go right ot July?

Denise RJ Brasil   June 24th, 2010 10:52 pm ET

Goodnight everyone,

I was posting here for six months after that day so painful for the entire world, I needed to keep a distance, was crying in the streets and thinking about Michael Jackson full days, such was the trauma that his death caused me.

Never forget, nor want to forget, even today I feel great sadness at her sudden departure ...

In this blog I feel the presence of Michael Jackson in the hearts of true fans and commentators, so come pay tribute to one year of nostalgia!
Feels like I'm here smiling at his fans who never deserted him.

Longed King of Pop, God be with you at his side.

I will always love you darling Michael Jackson, really bad!
The Brazilians love it!
Rest in peace!

babycarie   June 24th, 2010 10:52 pm ET

Hay Patty!!
She is just lovely...I am always smelling her head and feeling her soft hair wisp against my cheek...she is perfection...pure love! I am still getting the hang of things...I will probably be an expert when she goes off to college!!
Patty, I have so many mixed emotions...I feel like crying yet want to jump up and down thanking God for blessing us with Michael even if only for a short time. His legacy will be his the few years he had with them, they have gained more than most children do in a lifetime. How they grow from here will be a testament to Michael's influence...and I know they will do him proud. His legacy will be in how we carry on with his message of hope and of working to make this a better world. His message will be the beautiful works of art he left us...his music, his dance, his short films, his drawings, his smile. We were truly blessed to have lived during his have witnessed his genius. Much love to you Patty!! I am sure you've been busy with your organization...being Michael's voice!!!!!

elly   June 24th, 2010 11:00 pm ET

I am very pleased to see those 10 year olds singing michael's song and enjoying his music. as all of you said michael would have loved this. this is making me cry. his love and music will live forever and he will be missed forever.

doubtingthomas2010   June 24th, 2010 11:02 pm ET

Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!!!

babycarie   June 24th, 2010 11:11 pm ET

Mother always told me Michael Jackson had some of the greatest people for fans...and I have found that to be beyond true!!! You all are some of the coolest people I have ever experienced and I thank you all for allowing me to be a part of this journey!!!
Suzie Q...that scene where Michael is pointing at LM in the audience during the MTV awards...that is me pointing at you right now!!!!! 🙂
You and I are kindered spirits...and in another life I would ask you to marry me!!!!

Mother is in LA...she drove past FL, but could not bare to stop...said she felt like she was intruding, which is my mom. She initially said she would not go there, but when in LA felt compelled to go and say goodbye, even though you really never can say goodbye to Michael Jackson. He will live forever in all our hearts.

These children and all the children of the world can be taught to continue to make that change!! It is our job to carry on Michael's message of hope and giving and laughter and love. Heal the world...

You are sending out a major love to Michael with your heart and your smiles and with your love for him...he is smiling down from heaven with such joy, and is finally at peace..
When you feel that gentle breeze wisp across your cheek it is his kiss!
Love to you Denise!!
My mom has many wonderful memories of Michael and she treasures each one. She always wished she could catch that hat tossed into the audience!!
Love to you!!

RFergy   June 25th, 2010 8:24 am ET

One year, I am still in shock!

I haven't posted here in some time.. but I thought today of all days I should leave a comment.

The only words I can think of are "Michael you are truly missed and loved greatly!"

To all the wonderful bloggers I have met over this year I thank you for being there through a loss the whole world has felt! Love to you all!

babycarie   June 25th, 2010 8:36 am ET

Speechless...speechless...that's how I feel...
Siting here cuddling my baby, i almost feel guilty for just being when Michael's life was stolen from him.
He is at peace and is in a much better place...never will he hurt again.

Mila   June 25th, 2010 8:42 am ET

Magical Child – part 1 and part 2 are poems written by Michael.
I wrote the one below in his memory

Magical Child – part 3
by Mila Mihova

Magical child, full of light, full of wonder,
Heaven’s gift to this sad earth, where’re you now ?
Your unbreakable wings how they wanted to sunder,
Your invincible spirit how they struggled to bow!

Magical child, how they trapped you in anguish,
How they laughed at and muffled your desperate cries,
How they hurled you in pain, watched you wither and languish,
How they tortured your heart with their poisonous lies!

No more, sweet darling, your triumph was granted
With luminous wings you are soaring above,
Safe in the hearts are the seeds that you planted,
Your gardens are shining, full of flowers of love.

Peace to your beutiful soul, Magic Child

Tink   June 25th, 2010 9:02 am ET

These children are so amazing and agree seeing this tribute is something that would have made Michael so happy and very proud to see. Michael's musical legacy will be with us all FOREVER!!! and there is NO DOUBT he will continue to inspire generations for years and years to come. To my Dear BBFF's Much L.O.V.E. to you all today for I know your hearts are as heavy as mine. I am so honored to have shared in this journey of L.O.V.E., ADMIRATION and RESPECT for Michael. Even though our hearts are broken we must remember that Michael NEVER GAVE UP on ANYTHING even when faced with countless adversity so we too must have FAITH that Justice will be served for him one day....For if you have faith as small as a mustard seed nothing WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU. Matthew 17:20

stuci   June 25th, 2010 10:07 am ET

Heartbraking.... They are wonderfull!

Susan62509   June 25th, 2010 10:37 am ET

Enjoy your wonderful day visiting Gary, IN. Thank you for delivering your fabulous album with our writings enclosed. You are a true inspiration to Michael. Be safe. Look for cris. Jump in front of a media camera for an interview. Looking forward to your video upon your return. Inhale every memory possible today to carry you through a lifetime. Bless you MMJ.

The kids choir was cute. I noticed one little girl in particular that had rhythm, really getting into the song. She was darling.

Michael, tell the angels hello from your fans.

mother1earth   June 25th, 2010 11:23 am ET

May the Michael Jackson Fans find Peace.

Michael Jackson has been at peace for one year today!

ibelieve25   June 25th, 2010 12:04 pm ET

Michael, thank you for a wonderful journey. You are the best. You have brought together people from all over the world in your honor. No other person can say they have accomplished such an act of love as you. There will never be enough words to express the gratitude due to you for everything you have done for this planet, for the children and for your fans.
No matter where the journey leads, I am thankful to have been a part of it. Thankful for the wonderful friends I have made along the way, the bonds we have made came from the love you sent our way. You exemplify goodness, compassion, and love in all you do. Even though I am sure you have had your moments of anger, depression, sadness, you have always composed yourself to show us how to love each other in-spite of the hate, the anger, the devastation. You challenge us to be better, to make a change, to see the world needs us to heal it and ourselves. Today Michael, I do not celebrate the passing of the entertainer, rather the awakening of the world. This day does not change my own personal beliefs. For many, they see it as a day of pain. I know you want to wrap your arms around us all, to comfort those with falling tears. Bless you Michael for all you have done, and all you continue to do.

Jan   June 25th, 2010 12:47 pm ET

These children are brilliant! Big hugs to everyone!

Neelam   June 25th, 2010 1:44 pm ET

Well, Michael is a great person.He is, not was.MJ lives on in our hearts. He was a great entertainer. He always cared about Planet Earth, Poor People, especially children. Let's remember him by helping the needy people & caring for our Mother Earth.GROW MORE THREES. STOP POLLUTION. SAVE EARTH.....................

letta(IbeLIEve)   June 25th, 2010 6:17 pm ET

Today is the date of Michael Suppose to be death, but in my heart I feel that he is very much alive. Doing things that he miss out on while dedicating his life to music and his fans, Today, to me is a celebration for Michael, not sadness as some may have it. I am a Believer and will continue to be one. So, my day will be nothing but Michael Day of nothing but music and happiness for him. Because, wherever he may be he is enjoying the peace of mine along with his kids, and family. Michael the Superstar shall always be with us in memory, and Michael the person will always be in the Hearts of his Children. With all my Love to Michael ...Hugs & Love & Lot's of Blessings. Letta

It is also wonderful to see the Ten Years pay Tribute to the King of Pop. His love even lives within our children, is that a wonderful thing to see or hear? Even, my five year old grandson loves to sing and dance off Michael's music. It joy to see kids enjoy his music much as we do. What a celebration this day is to All. Letta

cocovelvet   June 25th, 2010 6:29 pm ET

Hi everyone !!!

What a relief to see a lot of you in LKL to mourn together our King of Pop MJ, especially all you the oldies ( the bloggers from a year back). Just can't believe its now a year since MJ tragically passed away.

My deepest sympathies in this day goes mainly to Katherine, Joe, Prince, Paris, Blanket and the rest of the Jackson family. They have to know we are all with them in this special but sad day.
