Michael Jackson Funeral today

For those of you who have had a hit by any of this, I know I did. I'm still quite devastated actually;but a quick reminder his funeral is in a couple of hours. Search for any big TV news station on TV as well as online as they will be broadcasting a live feed.

Anyone who is wants to post one last photo on here that's touched you, please do so.

One last time, my condolences to the Jackson family, his poor children and the millions of fans around the world.

God Bless

If you are not watching it Live right now, the memorial was incredible and I really suggest anyone who's missed it, to load it up on youtube when it comes and to watch it.

The only thing that made me sad was the daughter and thinking of the kids. Other than that, call me heartless but I'm really, really, really sick of hearing about it. It's on the news, radio, computer, magazines..

And the people who were crying their eyes out and could barely talk in their interview and they've never even met him.. I mean really?, comeon.

I agree with Equestruin.

Millions of people die each day. What makes him so special? He created some music?

Ugh. I just hate that he is overshadowing people like Farrah.

I watched the funeral and it was very moving. I do think the media overshadowed Farrahs death but he also had more impact than she did. That is not said to be rude but he influenced all music (he didn't just create some music) he influenced dance and above all a humanitarian. He was soooo involved in charities it was unbelievable.

Yeah while he's sitting up there in his million+ mansion with all his nice things, people are starving, suffering, just making it by, and dieing each day. He donated 5% of what he actually made, which is like pocket change to him. Not to mention he was in debt up the wazoo.

Thousands of innocent little children are dying and kidnapped each day, does the news ever cover a majority of it?.. No. Think about it, if we used all the air time that MJ has had, then do you know how many children would be found?.


'Eh then again this is just my opinion. Don't take it to offense.

Yeah, there are starving children and people die every day. Personally, I loved Michael Jacksons music and so I'm going to mourn him instead of Farrah. He did more for all the starving children we like to talk about than anyone on this board has or will.
