Goose Bumps ...

There are a few ignorant people in my world who really don't get the Michael Jackson thing ... the fact that his death is steadily in the news, and will continue to be until there are answers to the lingering questions, is enough to just plain piss them off.

Whatever drove or haunted Michael Jackson, to do the things he did, is not something I spend time thinking about. I've pulled some crazy things in my life that would shock you for sure.

So today I am thinking about this song and how it was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie to call attention to the starving children in the US and Africa ... and how their project netted millions to feed them.

Michael Jackson made some strange choices ... but he also made the connection "WE are the World" and "WE are the Children". That's how I'm remembering him.


  1. I have to admit I am not a huge Michael Jackson fan, and I never owned his records (with the exception of "We Are the World"). But I can appreciate that he was a genius, and he had a big heart.
