You'll always be King.

August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

Do you remember where you were? Do you remember what you were doing when you found out the King of Pop had passed? People remember when Elvis died, they remember when Lennon was shot, they remember watching a man land on the moon...and today too will be one of those moments that will go down as one that we all will remember.

This is the end of an era. Do they even come as great as Michael anymore? Nobody before or since entertained the world the way Michael did with his tremendous gifts. Even when he went from the King of Pop to the King of craziness, nobody could deny his musical genius.

I remember being 6, and wanting to heal the world, and believing it didn't matter if people were black or white. I remember crying watching a whale jump a stone wall to freedom listening to your lyrics. You were just so cool.

We all secretly wished we could be you.
