Is Michael Jackson in Heaven now?
Thursday, 2 July 2009
Michael Jackson’s death has left his fans in a surreal place. There are now reports on the internets of some of his fans committing suicide. The fan community is suffering from depression and shock and thousands of them are expected to gather for a vigil on 13 July where Michael Jackson was due to perform.
I quote the following 2 paragraphs lifted off the internet based on a Face book posting by someone:
Michael Jackson was both a legend and an icon of our day. But why the shock when he dies? Sure, we wouldn’t want any of us in the world to pass away. None of us wish to lose loved ones or friends to death’s inevitable grip. But this should be a stark reminder of who we are in this world, human!
Because Michael was human, he too is not exempt from the ever-losing battle against death. Why are many shocked at the death of Michael Jackson? Probably because we think, perhaps, he was too young. But no matter how old Michael was at his death, the world would mourn just the same. And it is amazing to see the adoration this man received within minutes after he died. Literally millions tuned into the news, Internet, and phone lines to talk about the death of one man. And to this very second, the world is gathered together, in spirit, to praise this one man for his great accomplishments. You would think this man was a god!
My next question is, “is Michael Jackson in Heaven now?’’
