There were so many wonderful things said at the Michael Jackson Memorial Service yesterday. I’m a big fan, but I did not realize the scope of Michael’s impact. He is in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most charities supported by a pop star. Rev. Al Sharpton stated the profound truth that teenagers listening to Michael’s music and seeing him perform became more comfortable with race relations – and those teenagers grew into adults who were comfortable voting for a President of color. Michael Jackson is a beautiful example of how an artist or creative person can do so very much in his or her part to heal the world.
