    Well, the new principal wasn't there in 1993....

    And he was very gracious during the many discussions to get the name uncovered.

    Meme I AGREE. I always feel that especially when it comes to Michael, we should acknowledge those who help in bringing Justice to his name.

    We need to remember that there are different types of giving. Some people only give for food/shelter/medical and that is OK. What is bad is scoffing or belittling those who engage in other types of giving, or belittling the giving itself.

    The issue is that a school wants a music room in honor of Michael. They need money for technology. Will the kids use the room--YES. Does the school have the money--NO. Those who want to give should do so, and those who do not want to give should not. I visited that school and you should see how happy they are when you give them a donation for supplies. Giving to this cause does not mean you cannot give to help in Africa, or the poor in America, England, etc.

    To be honest, Urbina did all he could to have it uncovered when he was contacted, but it wasnt up to him to make the decision, that's why it took so long. The actual parents were in favor of having it uncovered too.
    But I see what you mean.

    You cant be angry at a building and you cant blame the new parents and priniciple for what people did in the past. Well you can but it seem unreasonable. The new principle did not keep the name covered it was not in his power to remove it. He is the one along with the PTA and MJ fans that petitioned the district school board to have the name removed. They all worked togther to make this a reality and they were all happy and proud to have Michael's name restored. We were all happy

    Michael's name is on that Building and that has to stand for more than just brick and mortar. What kind of message
    would we be sending to the world or the children about him if we just ignored that. It has to stand for something.

    Im sorry you feel bitter :better: but you are out nothing.. They will except the Money from generous fans of Michael who care More about the CHILDREN there than all the arguments you can present. MJ Fans along with the Gardner school worked hard together to get Michael's name uncovered and now they have an ungoing relationship for the benefit of the CHILDREN.

    Now You know in your heart the CHILDREN are the MOST important to Michael and they will always trump any argument you have to offer. I hope you have a change of heart but. Regardless Michael's fans will continue to help these CHILDREN in his honor. No one is forcing you or anyone to care about this initiative or help the CHILDREN of Gardner Elementary.
    I hope you can find a charity or initiative you can care about and support.-maybe Make a donation to Roosevelt

    Isn't it only about what they have done in the past? Michael never held a grudge against anyone. He just didn't forget. And he tried to teach them something. Isn't that what we as Michaels army of love should be all about? To not judge these people on what they thought (and were told by the press) back in '03. But to educate them about Michael, to tell them the truth and most of all, to tell them what Michael stood for and what he wanted for the world.

    Even if there are still people at that school who wanted the sign covered up. Maybe by learning from the stories from the fans who arranged this, they changed their minds. They learned new things about Michael which they never knew about. I hope that the music room will not only have the kids listen to his music, but also explain to them what his songs ment and what they were intended for.

    Don't live in the past, live in the future. And the future we can change by educating people about Michael, to have his name attached to things he stood for and believed in.
    YOU
    You are the sun shining bright | You are the clouds in the sky | You are the leaves on trees | You are a bird flying by
    You are the waves in the 7 seas | You are that little shining light | You are forever in the sky | You are forever shining bright
    I love you, I miss you. You inspirited me, you inspired us.
    You are forever in my heart!

But I do understand your feelings. I just dont want people to think this is frivilous. Its not

    You can never please everyone. MJ knew this first hand....


    I think a MJ Music Room at Gardner is a great idea. I will definitely support it...Like Paris said in her Ellen interview, it's not all about academia, kids need other ways to express themselves &
    develop new talents
    I agree with the both of you. This is another type of healing Michael advocated for. Many of these children never realize their full potential or aspirations simply because of the lack of access to adequate art funded programs as a result of their economic background. Michael came from such a background and was very very blessed to have realized his dream despite the problems often encountered. So many of these kids live to only realize their dreams, and a music program would definitely heal them in a sense that they would have some sort of distraction from the problems they face at home and actually make something of themselves for tommorrow. That said , I definitely support this. I always hoped that Michael would have gotten the chance to operate his own Arts and Music school especially for the disadvantaged children.

    Hard one. I really don't like this school after what they did and to come now and act like they somehow love and respect Michael just seems wrong. At the same time, you want people to do things like this, even those who were wrong before....

    ^^It was not the school that covered up the name, but the district and parents from the past. Some of you need to read about the uncovering where you will learn that the current students did not even know why the sign was there and some of them are Michael fans too. Please try to give to show people that doing the right thing has rewards attached to it. Michael used to pay the salary of the music teacher in this school if I am not mistaken. Remember it is about little kids. The kids know we are helping them. TMez also spoke to the students and told them a little about Michael.
