Michael Jackson Finally Laid To Rest
Michael Jackson was finally laid to rest on September 3, 2009 after over two months of repeated autopsies, numerous rumors, accusations of murder, and daily speculation and notoriety.
Forget, for just a moment, about all of the above and think about the family. Michael was a son, father, brother, and uncle. His parents and siblings and children have lost a loved one. While waiting for a source of closure that usually comes days after someone dies, they have been forced to endure the constant pain and stress that comes with the tragic death of a celebrity.
The televised memorial service on July 6th was full of sad, beautiful, poignant moments. But it was Michael’s daughter Paris who reminded us all that someone who mattered in the fabric that is family died. Her sincere grief for her father touched us all.
Today would be a great day to take a moment to think about and pray for a family that has been through so much in the last two months. Send them a silent blessing. Resist talking about the circumstances of Michael’s death. Help a grieving family find some closure.
