Michael Jackson R.I.P.
July 11, 2009
Michael Jackson’s life has been a whirlwind from the beginning – from a little boy singing his heart out to a shy man overwhelmed and clinging to his childhood. With a life as rich as his, it’s hard to avoid controversy. Whether he did or did not assault children is difficult to know since you have to filter out all the opportunism.
I just hope that people can separate that he was different from the “norm” when they try to decide the story they believe. Whether (or not) he had tons of plastic surgery, liked being around children, slept in a hyperbaric chamber, had a pet chimp, lived in Neverland or was debt-ridden is irrelevant when dealing with child-abuse charges. People need to be objective when discussing allegations that can ruin a life.
