Michael Jackson: Transcendence and Legacy

Michael Jackson was determined to serve us with his music and dance, dedicating his life, giving up his childhood, to creating magic for us. He found joy in serving us with his music.  I’ve seen so many videos created about the genius that was Michael Jackson. Between the music, video and the words spoken by eminent professors, thinkers and social critics, I find this to be one of the better ones. It is insightful, caring, sincere, real, honest, inspiring, and filled with L.O.V.E.

Why didn’t we speak so kindly of him while he was alive? While the media attempted to create a freak show with slander, defamation, false rumors and false allegations, we all know the truth, not just by reason but by the heart. I believe it will take decades before we truly recognize the genius of Michael Jackson. As I watched this video, I cried tears of injustice. Why do we wait until someone is gone to realize the gifts he gave this planet? Michael shared his mind, body, heart and soul with us. Did he suffer from sadness, loneliness, pain? Yes, and that’s why he created as beautifully as he did.

I am grateful and humbled that I was witness, as a child and adult, to Michael Jackson’s heart. He was a sensitive person with a pure heart. A shining love with real love for humanity. He embodied the virtues of love, compassion, peace, and charity. His beautiful, kind, loving gentle sprit is being taught in schools which I know would have made him happy.

I can’t put it more eloquently than Dr. Michael Eric Dyson shares here so succinctly.

Any great artist is wrestling with their sadness and loneliness, their fears, anxieties, insecurities and they’re transfiguring those into complicated forms of expression that affect our hearts, minds and souls and remind us of who we are as human beings, the fragility of our human status and the inevitability of death.

    Aint that a fact Hannah,,,,it hurts to know that Michael didn’t receive the love he deserved when he was alive. I wrote an article about that in 2006……3 years later, puff, he’s gone. Now people see what we’ve seen all along. The tabloids were ruthless. Michael’s heart must have been raw with pain,,,but he also knew he was loved too. His fans made him smile inside. He deserved that. Thank you for this blog Hannah. – Love, Bonnie

    I will always remember Michael who sacrificed his life for so many willingly and selflessly and whom he brought joy laughter, taught us humility, and gave many millions a reason to live. I love you Michael until the last breath I take and if God willing in the next lifetime after that and forevermore.

    Thank Hannah for loving Michael and appreciated Michael the way you do<3.
