I don't know about others, but I feel that Michael Jackson's music was part of the soundtrack of my life. I can pinpoint different points in my growing up, the joys and sorrows, the valuable lessons and invaluable disappointments - every step of the way, every tear and laugh, every new and lost love, Michael's music was there. He often said that all he wanted to do through his songs and performances was make people happy. He did that and more for me. I feel as if I owe him something in return that I will sadly never be able to repay. I wish that I could have waved a magic wand and made him happy, but the depth of his sadness was too great for anyone to overcome. Now that he's gone, I lament his untimely death, but I also rejoice in the musical legacy he left behind. And I have a sneaky suspicion that he will be even bigger in death than he was in life. Already today, young children enjoy his music just as much as their grandparents. I think that cross-generational admiration of his genius will only grow so that 20 years from now young kids will not be saying "who was Michael Jackson" as much as they'll say "can I hear that song again - he was BAD!!!"
