Yesterday was one of the most melancholic days in history. Not only one, but two people passed away Farrah Fawcett & Michael Jackson. In reverence to their lives I am going to celebrate their passing by honoring the way they lived. Death should not be something that is looked down upon. They are now resting in a better place. In amidst of all the chaos and confusion there will no longer by physical suffering. Their souls are now at rest. Michael Jackson was a genius. He was the voice of a generation. He was what all artists desire to be. He mastered his craft. Having grown up in the spotlight he never had a childhood. He was a musical genius and the talent and charisma he held were unparalleled. Thriller holds a special significance for me because not only did I grow up listening to the album, but I was born in 1982 the year it was released. I regret having never seen him perform. His music will live on forever. For a complete bio, please refer to the Wiki: Michael Jackson He was The Last Samurai. R.I.P. The proper ending for a great life lived.
    The Samurai is gone. The spirit
    of samurai lives forever.

    Tell me how he died.

    I will tell you how he lived."

    In addition, he lived a lonely life and became so isolated. No one truly understood his pain. I am going to share a memorable quote from Nagato/Pein from Naruto because I think it elaborates on this: "...Do you understand pain a little now? If you don't share someone's pain, you can never understand them. But just because you understand them doesn't mean you can come to an agreement. That's the truth."
