The 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson passed today. Our dear Michael is today dancing with the angels, free of the shackles of human life, and divinely blessed by the millions upon millions of people whose lives he enriched through music, dance and joyous self-offering. Do you think his Soul is shining? Do you think he's getting a hero's welcome in Heaven? I can feel it.
Here's a moving tribute by Deepak Chopra.
"...when the shock subsides and a thousand public voices recount Michael's brilliant, joyous, embattled, enigmatic, bizarre trajectory, I hope the word "joyous" is the one that will rise from the ashes and shine as he once did."
Andy Ostroy wrote: "Now that he's gone, the appreciation of his gigantic talent, and the tremendous impact it's had on pop culture, inspiring everyone from Justin Timberlake and Usher to Chris Brown and Madonna, has really hit home."
Jon Pareles' appraisal of Michael's life in the NY TIMES is worth a read..
And finally to Michael..."We are the World" - a landmark humanitarian effort from the mid-80s!
