Our Good Night Sweet Prince.

Comment from LA Times story:

Something special and seemingly forgotten Michael Jackson did years ago in California... The first school shooting in my memory was in northern CA ~ It was in the 1980's and Michael was very popular at the time. The day after the shooting Michael showed up at the school, unannounced, for the children to help them through a difficult time. It didn't make big news but after that we knew Michael was a good person with a true love for people. He was a victim of the media and society which we always found very sad.

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Of course, as Tim commented, the man was sleeping with kids in his bed, and what possible reason could a man have to do that? "Maybe he just wanted kids as friends as part of trying to get back that lost childhood," I said. He shook his head and said, No, something still feels bad there.

So then I thought about people I've known who seem to contain both heaven and hell battling it out in their personalities, and drawing everyone around into the vortex. And it doesn't seem that hard to me to understand. You just celebrate what's great about whatever that person's contribution was. And when they leave us for the next world, it's right to take a look at them and at their lives and re-live how their genius lit our worlds.
