It was not until June 25th 2009, that Michael was viewed as human; like one of us. Until then, he was viewed as a performer, child star and celebrity; an unreachable, ‘larger than life’ figure. In our eyes he was ‘immortal’. For four decades we had been engulfed in Michael’s genius and stardom, often taking for granted his talent and the sacrifices he made. We had never imagined that we would have so little time left with him; that someone like Michael Jackson would one day not be with us.
On June 25th 2009 at 2:26pm the whole world stood still. As Michael’s passing was confirmed, the line between celebrity and reality soon faded. Michael’s death, in a way, humanized him and truly made the world realize that even the biggest stars fall just like everyone one of us. It was on June 25th, 2009 that we realized that immortality no longer meant escaping death. Michael’s genius, music, charity, love, passion and legacy will live forever on in his place.
On a more personal note…
'Oh how wrong we were to think, that immortality meant never dying…'
'If happy ever after did exist. I would still be holding you like this…'
"For now, Dick Clark … so long"

Michael Jackson attended funeral service for 2-year old Craig Fleming, and presented a contribution of $50,000 towards Craig’s surviving brother’s medical expenses and establishes a scholarship fund to benefit him.
Craig’s mother threw him over the side of a Los Angeles bridge along with his 4-year old brother (Michael Fleming), before jumping to her own planned death.
Michael initially did not want to attend the funeral but Lisa Marie convinced him to attend because his celebrity status shouldn’t keep him away from his feeling.
Michael later dedicated the song “Childhood” on the HIStory album to the memory of Craig Fleming.
This was the real Michael Jackson. The Michael Jackson everyone should know.
