Remember the Time...

Today I received a text from Wayne that said "MJ died today". The first thing I thought was "there is no way Michael Jackson is dead, who is MJ?". Sadly, I quickly learned that in fact it was the King of Pop who had passed. You may laugh, but my eyes filled with tears. As a child of the 80's Michael Jackson will forever hold a special place in my heart. MJ taught me my first dance moves (and yall know how much I love to dance), made me appreciate quirky fashion (who did not love the signature jacket and glove) and sparked my love for giving back and all things organic (we are the world). In fact, I remember when MTV hosted the (now infamous) "Stay a Micheal Jackson's house" event - my brother and I would call every time a MJ video came on and we racked up a pretty big phone bill to no avail! In college my social club, Lockhearts, did a MJ Tribute for Songfest (we danced to everything MJ)! To this day the King of Pop has a significant presence on my itunes and Remember the Time (my fav tune of all time) will forever be on my ipod. Today I pray that Michael Jackson is in a better place... RIP!

When I heard the news, the first person I thought about was you. I knew you would be sad. :(
