    I was home, in my bed... Mom woke me up with "Today's entertainment - well, it's not really entertainment, but anyway - news; Michael Jackson is dead!"
    My brain didn't register it at that moment, and I'm quite ashamed to tell you that my reply was "...five more minutes...", but ater I woke up I went to our living room where my mother had turned on the TV and the news were all over it. My mind was just blank... It took me six months to realize that Michael was actually gone, never coming back...

    Iwas at home...sleeping in my bed...and I recieved an sms....I didn't want to open it because I had a terrible feeling... and I was right...it was a friend of mine (she is also a fan)
    she wrote it and I'll never forget how I felt at that moment I read it

    Michael was UNIQUE and being his fan when he was alive was so special!
    he has always a place in my heart
    I'll never forget him ...
    we need to do anything to pass on his legacy
    next genarations should know who Michael Jackson was
    and how g r e a t he was

    I was at home, online. Regular Facebooking and stuff for late evening time, and then TMZ broke the story that Michael had been rushed to hospital. I followed the story as others began sourcing TMZ for Michael having been brought to Cedars Medical Centre, and then TMZ posted the most horrific web story I've ever witnessed. For anyone who didn't follow from the announcement of Michael being brought to hospital, this was the first time Michael's death was posted by a media outlet:

    :'(


    I don't have any religion and I struggle with a belief in God or an afterlife, but I've never in my life prayed so hard for something to not be true. It took over 45 minutes before another media outlet confirmed the story beyond speculation as well. And finally, an announcement was made. Then the media insanity that we hadn't seen since 2005 started all over, only a thousand times worse. If nothing else, Michael's death prompted me to finally join MJJC to help me through his passing with people in the same boat. And for that I'll always remain loyal to MJJC, even if I don't post nearly as often as I used to.

    I was at work, but didn't know anything until I got home at night. I couldn't believe. I thought it was a joke. I turned the computer on and opened the cnn website and put the live stream on. There were news about him being dead, then news about him being in a coma. About 30 minutes later, Jermaine talked to the press and confirmed Michael had died.

    I know exactly where I was, but I don't like to talk about it.
    I still have all the text messages of that day saved on my old cellphone including the first one from my mother who texted me the news.

    Some of us like to play it safe and take each day as it comes.
    Some of us like to take that crazy walk on the wildside.
    For those of us who like living dangerously, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!

    I was in my friend's car early at the morning. The radio was airing earth's song at that time. We were on the way to school. As one of my friend joined in, he broke the news. Upon hearing that news I knew life wouldnt be that same for me again.

    I was visiting my parents and I spent most of the afternoon outside in the garden - no tv , no cell phone , no radio. so I didn't hear anything. When we came inside the house I checked my email and saw several emails from friends about Michael. I asked my dad to turn the TV to CNN. It said family was to make a statement soon. I sat down and waited motionless / emotionless. Then Jermaine came on TV and said ....

    I remember I was up late anyway, I was on MJJC and I saw the thread that was discussing a sighting of an ambulance entering and leaving Michael's home - we all thought it was one of his staff.

    Then my sister (who was taking me and a friend to the 22nd July O2 show) sent me a message telling me to check the news. I switched on BBC and it was one of those "we're receiving reports" type things, it just said that Michael had been taken to hospital, nothing serious. I remember thinking that he'd probably fallen or something during rehearsals.

    I actually turned off the telly and was ready to get to bed when the friend I was going to the concert with, called me and told me to turn on the news. There it was, on BBC, the aerial shots of UCLA are the most vivid image I have of that night. I watched all night. I turned cold when they reported that TMZ were saying he'd died, and then when confirmation came...

    My mum had been watching with me, she just gave me a hug and I cried a little.

    I was at sixth form (college) the next day. All my friends rushed over to me as soon as they saw me to comfort me. I couldn't listen to his music for a couple of days. I bought and still have a copy of The Times newspaper from Friday 26th, the headline is "The King of Pop, Michael Jackson Dies at 50" - I thought that was the nicest headline I'd seen.

    I'll remember Michael as the man who brought music and dance into my life, the man who helped me through some of my darkest moments and who contributed to some of my brightest. He inspires me to be the best in my field and to help others where possible.

    His music is eternal, and where his body is no longer with us, I believe his soul will live on through the legacy he has left us all. I'm not religious, so I don't believe he's in heaven or anything...but there's something in his music that keeps me thinking he's still with us in soul. I hope that makes sense and doesn't offend anyone.

    Anyway, rant over haha :)

    Rest in peace Michael.

    I think I was online. I saw the news and it was so unexpected. But it was weird it looked expected at the same time. It was very weird moment. One of the weirdest I have ever faced.
    "God knows, I know, that he tried his best to hold on.
    But at least when he died, he knew that he was loved,
    not only by his parents, but even by me, a near stranger, I also loved him.

    And with all of that love he knew that he didn't come into this world alone,
    and he certainly didn't leave it alone.

    If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same,
    then everything that happens in between can be dealt with."

    I was at home, sleeping. Then suddenly my bro knocked. Michaels dead!
    I didn't believe him. Then we woke my sister. Then our parents. We all sat before the tv and couldn't believe it.
    I'll never forget that moment.
    I love you more!
