Shocking news!! shocking revelations!! This is how we tremble when we heard it, seen it and verify it to our reliable source…”Michael Jackson is dead!” Indeed, the king of pop is dead.
I was never one of the huge fan of him. Born in the era of his triumph and popularity, I was at my innocence at that time and had grown in a poor family where even a television–we can’t afford to buy. Coz if we did, i could have been one of his million fans have i known it.
I am not really aware of his life, until now: the big heart he has for the children, the world tour for charity; the visitations he made for the sick children all over the world, the multi-million money he donated for the children, all if not few of his contributions to the society as his way of caring to the children and as payment to his deprived childhood.
True enough that you can’t hear the goodness and the greatness of you unless you ‘re dead, so is with this person. When he was still active in the entertainment, most of what he heard from the television and can be seen in the papers are negative stories, opinions of some people whom they think that michael is not a good influence to the youth or other person. Although he was praised by many, but he was not exempted from the cruel and turmoil world of entertainment in the hands of what they called–paparazzi.
He was allegedly accused of child sexual harassment that caused him million of dollars when he was still under litigations, the controversy behind his ranch in Neverland, the questions being raised to him as a father to his children (Prince, Paris and Blanket). These were some of the controversies and had been the questions of many people that he failed to answer in public, as if he owes them an explanations!
With his death, it is also a controversy or an issue to ponder. As to the news, his death was caused by cardiac arrest, others would say that his death was caused by his taking of unprescribed medicines which was allegedly gave by his resident physician. But nobody ever knew that his death would come along that easy and in no time. Although, questions and investigations brought about by his death is still ongoing, something is clear enough to me–no matter how famous we are, popular, rich and glamorous–we are all human. We’re born because we are doomed to die. And in death we are to be born again in spirit and in dust we are to return to our heavenly father—and MICHAEL is not an exception.
RIP Michael “aka KING OF POP” JACKSON
