Michael Jackson Dies

Michael jacksonI know LOTS of people may write about this.

My post is short.

No matter WHAT you think of Michael Jackson, his music shaped a lot of our culture over the last 40 years or so.

On a day that we loose Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and the same week Ed McMahon die, we see MANY decades of our pop culture flashing through our lives.

God bless you all for the joy you brought to us, Lord have mercy for all the pain in your lives, may you rest in peace.

God (and humanity) forgive them for whatever personal issues they had based on human pressure, parental pressure, excess, whatever.

I agree, well said Greg.

 

A surreal day to say the least. The first record that I remember owning was a 45 rpm of "Stop the love you save" (I think that the flip side was "Rockin Robin") by the Jackson 5 (Second was "Spinning Wheel" BS&T).

The first poster that I remember putting up on my wall was the famous Farrah poster.

Pop culture seems to provide time markers for our lives. When icons of pop culture pass, I find myself reflecting on those times past.

By exposure and memories of these times, it is like these people that most of us never meet are a part of our lives. When they pass, it is natural for us to mourn a little. Perhaps for the icon, perhaps for the past.
