I know there’s been overwhelming coverage here, there, and everywhere else. But today, a legend will be put to rest. And from the comments I keep getting every day, I know I’m not the only one who’ll be feeling the loss. So here — leave your comments, express your sadness, share with me.
And if you’d like to read my previous Michael Jackson posts — here are links.
I’ve tried explaining to those who weren’t fans and who don’t understand why it makes me so sad. It’s difficult to put into words, but the song above helps a little. We had Got To Be There on 8-track when I was a young’un. Hearing those soaring vocals takes me back to a much more innocent time, and Michael’s music does that for so many of us. It’s hard to accept that he’s gone.
I’m hoping these tears will dry on their own, and soon. But it probably won’t be today.
