    Thumbs up How Does Michael Jackson Inspire You?




    The MJJC Legacy Project Team is here for you. We have a project for everyone..

    "How Does Michael Jackson Inspire You"

    Hello everyone. :waving:

    Have you found yourself thinking about Michael...because the team here at the MJJC Legacy Project sure has been thinking of him and we want to hear from you..

    We thought it would be fun for everyone to have a place to tell their own story of just how Michael Jackson inspires them.

    Our goal here is to have a special place for every member to gather and share Michael's legacy and part of that always has started with his fans.

    So, share what that certain something is that inspires you,what makes your heart & soul dance..what makes you become starry-eyed when you think of Michael Jackson. What is that special something that brought Michael into your life?


    Here's a place to share your stories & poems in this thread and discuss them together.
    Michael has been apart of most our lives since we can remember. I'm sure that many of you have your very own story no matter how big or small to contribute.

    We are a part of his legacy.
    Just like Michael has his "HIStory" in which he shared with us,let us share ours for him and each other.
    Michael Jackson's legacy is very rich and multi faceted - ranging a wide spectrum of music, dance,singing, philanthropist/humanitarianism, art & vision. Breaking the boundaries and opening the doors of unity where color lines and segregation are invisible.

    Through his art he has inspired the whole world beyond the times, speaking to us sonically and from his heart.

    Thank you so very much, Mr. Michael Jackson - or as we sometimes say Apple Head.

    This is my story here it is

    Twenty two years ago I was born with cerebal palsy. The horrible stories are not lingering in my head, as I was too young, but getting to an age of nine, I noticed that something wasn't right. It was that I couldn't play on swings, play football or anything like that, but to help me was my very close friends.

    It was hitting me at night time one night time as the normal routine was happening, you know, eating supper, then reading a book, then going to sleep. One night time we couldn't find a book to read, someone put the radio on about eight o'clock, you know about that time I used to think what a rare life I had, still listening to the radio, a song came on, it went a bit like this: 'another day has gone, I'm still all alone, how could this be, that you're not here with me.?' I asked quite quickly who is this? My carer said isn't it Michael Jackson, I said 'yes, but what is it called?' before the carer could say anything I heard the four words 'you are not alone', at that second I became a big fan. The carer that was here for eight years but has now gone, but I'm being helped by Michael to get over it. The carer said 'I've got the video', my mind went blank, I didn't know what he looked like and was he saving lives on the video, like he did mine? I borrowed it the next day and he looked so caring and innocent, and from there on I've been calling him my Dad, because my Dad left my Mum and when I was only young, this is creepy listen, when Michael was only five years old, he couldn't play football or go on swings, and he had got a Dad, but his Dad used to beat him up. There are so many comparisons that I can't think of them all right now.

    Years ago I had a carer called Helen, we used to play babyish games because Mum couldn't play with me when I was young. In the end Mum got worried because I was fifteen gong on sixteen and we kept playing these games, but that's because I didn't get a childhood, like Michael didn't. She went two years ago, again, like the carer that went after eight years, Michael helped me, but for this carer it was a song called 'have you seen my childhood?'
    Now I will get to where I was going in this story. I've got a better life but not a normal life. I get hurt from my hands hitting my head from the involuntary body movements I have, I have medicine three times a day, and every time I go into hospital I wear a T-shirt because I've seen Michael visiting hospitals, so when I wear a T-shirt with him on it, it's like he's with me.

    I'm not joking, but you can forget this part if you don't believe me, last year I had to go into hospital for a big back operation and they had their own radio station, which I don't think you can request any songs, but on the morning of the operation, what came on the radio? 'another day has gone, I'm still all alone, how could this be. that you're not here with me?'. That's right it was 'you are not alone', obviously by Michael Jackson. It took fourteen days to get over the operation, but as you can guess, it wasn't only the family and careers that helped me get over it, it was like Michael in spirit. No more songs came on, except for the one that Mum did request.
    Unlike 'you are not alone', that was a year ago, but 5 years ago something disgusting and disrespectful happened to Michael, he was accused of child molestation. If I could have been in that courtroom I would have, but because I can't get on a plane because I cannot sit in a plane seat, they will not let a chair on board, which I find disgusting and bias, anyway I would have had to pay two carers. But I know that Michael believes in all of his fans that were supporting him through the awful trial. So don't you get it?

    I eat, drink and breathe for Michael. So if it wasn't for Michael's song, 'you are not alone', I wonder if i would still be eating or drinking, or in a corner of a room rocking back and forward, or hey, I've got to be truthful, I might not even be here. Thanks to Michael, I feel that I can conquer anything, because Michael loves his fans, if you don't believe me about him being a lifesaver, do go on the internet, there is a website that has a story about a woman, he saved her life, and she became a fan, the same way I became a fan.

    How did Michael inspire me?

    Gosh... I've "known" Michael for 29 years now...
    He's always been my sweetheart even when I was a teenager and my 'friends' at school had
    'idols'... I had it hard to stick that 'idol' label on Michael as he's soooo much more than
    an "artist" people suck dry...
    Michael has always been the bro' I never had... My rock... My best friend through thick and thin...
    Still till today, he's the only one that can sooth me... My friends know that, my parents know that...

    People, even fans ask me... Have you met him? did you talk to him? Did you get his autograph?
    I only say 'yes' to the first 2 questions... Yes, on a spiritual level... I never realised you can 'talk'
    to someone's "aura" and it goes much deeper... as these 'words' are better understood by the soul...
    We only learnt how to talk with words so we could learn and grow here...The language of the soul is much...
    I would say more fun but that sounds wierd to people who are not on the same "spiritual level" ...
    I love Michael's radiant aura... I can find him without knowing where he stays when he was on tour...
    I can feel his energy field... Its a spiritual thing...
