Michael Jackson, RIP

Michael Joseph Jackson
1958 ~ 2009

Who among us wasn't shocked? We grew up with him and his siblings. Born in the same year as I was, MJ as one of the Jackson 5 hit the charts and got us singing, "I'll Be There." I remember how as kids we compared The Osmonds with Jackson 5. C'mon. Michael Jackson vs Donny Osmond? It's the passing of an incredibly gifted entertainer and performer. There were so many things that caught our attention, dazzled us. And made us cringe. Creepy, we said. Indeed, it was as if his talent was his tragedy. He made us sit up and listen. And he made us look.
