but anyways to be honest i was pretty much inspired and spoke what i felt and read on this forum..
This is what i sent them they did adjust bits but i'm glad it got printed...I hope you guys feel the same way
"I was part of the billions of viewers watching Michael Jacksons memorial on TV on Tuesday like most if not all I was really moved by Paris’s words about her daddy, but what killed me today was reading the papers that criticized the fact a little girl got the courage to speak up and show them the human side of the pop star we know. Now that Michael is gone they need a new target to pick on and his children are now that target. What she did was very brave and my heart goes out to Paris, Prince and Blanket but I can’t believe that even after his memorial something bad has to be said. Did it really hurt the media that bad? The fact that “***** *****” was actually “the best father you could ever imagine” he wasn’t what they made him for most of his life, so what do they do? They decide to say how wrong it was for the Jackson Family to let her say her few words. The media may be a powerful tool but you can’t get more powerful then teary eyed children who have lost a father, she made the world feel the same emotion at the very same time something the media can only wish to do.
May I also add the memorial was a fitting send of for the King of Pop. A lot of people may not understand this “new found obsession” with Michael Jackson and his death they don’t understand why the world is grieving for him? Michael Jackson is not just a pop star his a humanitarian who has done a lot for this world, yes I may not have never meet Michael and don’t know him personally, Heck I wasn’t even alive during his thriller days but I like a lot of people have a lot of respect for him and I just hope even though I’m already seeing headlines like “Body was not in casket” “Michael to be buried without his brain” They finally let him rest in peace and I just hope and pray they don’t take away Prince, Paris and Blankets Childhood away from them something that Michael tried to give them, a childhood he never had."
