    Amazing post and beautifully written, wannabestartinsomthin21.

    This should be on the FRONT PAGE of every newspaper!

    Michael showed us how to make a better world. He lived it everyday.

    He is and always will be a true miracle.

    I think you've managed the capture and express something that many of us feel deep inside. I certainly resonate deeply with what you said. Your words are truly beautiful and I wished THIS was something that would be all over the media, a statement from the fans so to speak, maybe somehow we can make that happen. I for one, would like to take your beautiful words and spread them to those I know. Please let me know if that would be okay with you.

    I feel this is truly too much of a fan community manifesto, to not be spread.

    You guys are welcome to take it and give it to whomever you please. I'm honored that you think so highly of what I wrote and that its representitive of how you also feel. I would send it to Oprah, but I think it's too long. They only allow a maximum of 2000 characters I believe.

    Nicole, you're a rock star, girl! Once again, you've articulated beautifully what so many of us intuitively know and are feeling. Thank you for sharing! It is truly a lovely reflection on a wonderful person (and btw, it takes a beautiful soul to recognize one. it does! ).

    Merci and hugs

    When Michael Jackson passed on from this world on June 25th, 2009, I lost my hero. And although I never had the honor of meeting this extraordinary human being, I feel as though I lost a friend; family. And it is the very finality of his death, the fact that there is absolutely nothing I can do to change that he is gone, that so frustrates me. And what grieves me, what pains my heart so indescribably, is that here this cruel and brutal world had such a beautiful man, such an unfalteringly kind, generous, loving person, so full of care. That was the thing, Michael Jackson cared. He cared sincerely. It wasnít for show, or for gaining the spotlight, or for boosting the ego. The kind of care that Michael had was for the sake of those who he cared for alone. And who he cared for was humanity, he cared for the world. And it was from his heart.

    Iím in so much pain now in the realization that Michael Jackson was born in to a world too hurtful, too mean, for someone as kind and full of love as he was; for someone as sensitive and in tune with life as he was. And how horribly and viciously the very world he cared for treated him. I wanted Michael to be alright. I wanted him to win. To come out victorious, and show everyone that, despite what lies they spewed about him, in defiance of how tirelessly they tried to destroy him, they never could. I wanted him to finally be happy, when his life had been filled with so much heartache and suffering. I wanted that for him so much. And I wanted him to know that, despite all the cruel and ugly things people said about him and did to him, there were still so many who loved him as deeply as any love had ever run, and who saw him and knew him to be the absolute exemplification of all that is right and fine in human nature, the epitome of what is good and righteous and beautiful in this world; of what we can all strive to be as and of what, beyond all the pain and sorrow and hurt of this world, is possible for human kind. That we do not have to be selfish or cold or cruel, that we can give love unconditionally and freely, that we can forgive and see beyond the petty and self-centered concerns and needs that make up most of our lives. That we can transcend living for ourselves and begin living for each other. I wanted Michael to know that he was that and so many of us knew that. It breaks me inside to know that, in return for his being that way, for being so wholly selfless and so incredibly generous and for having such an uncompromising, limitless care for the world and everyone else in it, he was treated so badly, beaten up and tortured. Why couldnít we have shown him we love him? Why couldnít we have shown him even a fraction of the kindness he showed to us? I canít help but feel that our cruelty towards him was too much, that in the end, despite being so strong, and loving life so much, it was too much for him to bear, and he had to let go. No one could endure what he did for so long. And I wish so much I could just tell him how sorry I am for what the world did to him.

    But knowing Michael, and I feel I do, despite never having met him, I think he would and did forgive, everyone, despite how they wronged him. Because thatís the kind of a person he was. His love was too strong, too great, too powerful, to ever be extinguished, to ever be beaten out of him like the world does to so many of us. And God knows they tried. They tried so hard to stamp out that glow in his heart. But they never did succeed. They may have put out his life, but they never succeeded in putting out his love or lessening how much he cared, for life and for people and for animals, and for everything. And thatís what Iíll always remember about Michael. More then his talent, more then his material accomplishments. Iíll remember first and foremost what a good person he was, and how I and others can only hope to someday achieve even a fraction of the purity that was in his heart. If anything was greater then his talent, it was the capacity for good in his heart, the capacity for love and kindness. In Michael, it seemed and it was immeasurable. Thatís what people should remember, most of all. I hope someday they will learn to understand and appreciate how much he meant to this dark, cruel world of ours, and what a powerful light he gave to it, and how much we really needed and relied on that light which shown so brightly from him. That light was his soul, and I know, if there is a heaven, and I pray that there is, that Michael is there now. And I hope he can see how much we truly miss him and need him. He was a great artist. But most of all, above even that, he was a great human being, a good, beautiful human being who tried with all his might, with everything he had, to make this world less painful, to brighten it as much as he could, to make it a better place. And he did. He did. So many of us just didnít seem to notice how much until he was gone.

    I love you Michael, and I know so many others do to, and you will never be forgotten for what you truly were, a man with an unendingly beautiful soul, a man with a capacity for good and love and kindness that was without limit, someone who saw the beauty in the world where others only could see ugliness and pain, someone who saw the good in people were others only saw their faults and their weaknesses. You believed more wholly then anyone in the benevolence of the world and in people, and you let that belief guide you and you lived your life according to it, and though it led you down a path of hurt so often, and though it caused you to lose so much, you never wavered from it, you never let self-preservation or your own needs come first or take it away, because you truly were committed, you believed it so unwaveringly and so unquestioningly. Believing in the good and beauty of things wasnít fake with you Michael, like it is with so many others, and you proved that by living your life by it, even when it threatened to destroy you. You cared more about what you felt and knew to be the truth then about preserving yourself, and so few people can ever, really say that. You were a truly selfless man who had true conviction in what he said. You would give your life for what you believed in Michael, and maybe in the end, thatís exactly what you did.

    Just know Michael that I understand and I appreciate you for your character more then anything, and I hope everyone someday will too, and that they, like I, will know how truly extraordinary and special and wonderful you were and how much good you gave to us and how much you inspired hope in an otherwise hopeless world. Because of you Michael, I can never truly give up believing that there is something better then the heartache and devastation I see every day, because you were that thing that was better, so much better. I know it can exist, I know beauty can exist, because you were there. And even if you were too beautiful for this world, even if you were too good, I still know the universe produced a being of pure heart in you Michael, and that gives me hope, and it gives the world hope. And I thank you Michael, from the bottom of my heart, for you being you. For just simply being you.

    I wish so badly the world could have loved you as you loved it. It did not. But I still believe, Michael, that there is more then this anguish in existence, that there is more then sorrow, and itís because of you that I still believe. You were and are my inspiration to go on and to dream. Thank you Michael, again, for giving the world so much, for giving the world yourself, so selflessly. And thank you so much for simply being. It means more then words can ever describe. God bless you Michael, and I pray to God that you have finally found the peace and happiness you always deserved.

    I cannot express how much your post touched me, you have said everything that I cannot put eloquently into words myself. I feel so blessed to be in this community where I am finding so many people that feel the same way as I do. Thank you so much for posting this.

    Well said Wannabe. Thanks for sharing your words of truth.
    Michael is the epitome of LOVE. And it did shine brightly from his beautiful soul.
    His talent was magnified more because of who he was....a uniquely
    caring and generous person with the heart of gold.

    I'll miss him and love him always.



    Missing Michael.....
