    Strange Realization.

    I always felt so bad for him and the way his life turned out. He didn't really get much out of life, it seems. I went to school early on June 26th, to study(I had exams). I arrived around 8 am when I heard some people talking about MJ having passed away. I didn't really believe...

    Why We Are Hurting

    It all started this year, when I was in LA for the first time. While I was there, I decided to go on one of those celebrity house tours in Beverly Hills. We stopped by Michael's house... and it hit me. Everything changed that day. Before this happened, I didn't really know much...

    Remember the Time

    When I registered on this site, I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew of course that there was a few million people out there that loved Michael as much as I did, but I never knew the extent of it, or how it would affect me. By seeing everybody posting pictures and memories, I...

    I think about Michael Jackson every day. I think about him at church, yesterday while at the water park, while I'm working out, at night, as soon as I get up each morning. I don't know what's happening to me. I never considered myself a fan. I was born in1980 so I grew...

    He Meant a Lot to Me

    When I was younger I used to dance to his records (yes, those big CD's that spin around and around) and it always made me get to dancing when I heard him.  His moonwalk kept me up for hours trying to get it just right, and his clothes, just amazing.  I'll miss...

    He Touches My Heart.

    When I watched the documentary of him last week, I cried.  Michael was an innocent, pure soul.  He really didn't mean any harm.  When I hear people bashing him for sharing a bed with children, I think back to my childhood and all the adults I shared a bed...
