Michael Jackson has died: Rest in Peace

Michael Jackson has died. I prefer to remember him as he is above, from the 25th Anniversary of Motown special, singing and dancing to Billy Jean. Do you remember the buzz after that show? Do you remember how Fred Astaire called Michael the next day to tell him, "You're one hell of a mover." Do you remember everyone trying to moonwalk and watching Michael in his Sgt. Pepper outfit and sequined glove trying to hold eight Grammys in 1984? Do you remember trying to find out when the thriller video would be playing on MTV so you could watch it, tape it. I'll remember those things and try to forget what came later.

So I'll remember him as he was then and pray he's found peace.
