A Piece of Childhood

I just had to take a moment. I just heard about the death of Michael Jackson, and I'm in complete shock. Regardless of the oddities and accusations, I remember Michael as a key part of my childhood. I had the cassette tapes, and even had Thriller on VHS. My friends and I imitated his moves in our own dance routines, and later on, I introduced myself to The Jackson Five. This is a sad sad day for those of us who remember him as the man behind "Thriller", or the smiling falsetto in his family's group. No matter what the last years of his life brought, he was always the King of Pop. Maybe now, finally, he will be at peace.
