Tribute: Michael Jackson

Human knowledge consists not only of libraries of parchment and ink – it is also comprised of the volumes of knowledge that are written on the human heart, chiselled on the human soul, and engraved on the human psyche.”
~Michael Jackson, A speech at Oxford Univ. 2001

Heal the World: Icon’s Epitaph

To heal the world, we must heal ourselves.
Family is the glue that binds.
Unconditional love and forgiveness are our treasures.
Heal the world. Make it a better place.
For you and for me, and the entire human race.

  1. I’m glad to read this post. I’ve been reading a few blog/tweets where people obviously dislike him, but straight-up have no respect for him or his family during this time. People sometimes believe going against the grain combined with social media is trendy, giving them an edge. We must be careful not to use a faceless Internet as an excuse to abandon humanism, respect and dignity.

    For my bit on Jackson’s death:

    • Thank you. When I decided to write an epitaph, I did a little research on him and I discovered that he did alot of good things. He holds the guiness record for most artist involvement with charity. He was directly involved with 39 charities as well as holding benefits and such for countless others. Yes, he also did bad things. But no one is perfect. I think overall, he left more of a positive impact than a negative one. We each have every right to our opinions and feelings about him but I don’t think anyone has the right to judge him.
