Michael Jacksons Contributions To Society

Healing The World

Michael Jackson Was A Good Person

People need to stop berating Michael Jackson. The media will project him in any way they would like as long as it generates revenue. So many lies, false accusations, and other crap has been written about Michael and has never ever been proven. Many people have never taken the time to learn about Michael and why he is the way he is. Many people have not taken the time to really listen to the lyrics in his songs and understand why he is called "The King Of Pop". Michael is a legend who will be remembered as the greatest entertainer of all time.

Michael was a human being just like the rest of us. Not perfect, just like none of us are perfect. He did not come from the most stable family household, just like many of us who come dysfunctional families. He had lies and accusations made up about him, just like many of us who have had lies and accusations made up about us. He liked to be different from the pack, like many people in society who like to be original in their appearance, dress, and personality. The only thing that made Michael different from everyone else is that his life was highly publicized.

He was always being judged but have we looked in the mirror lately?

Michael sang many songs about the media and people judging him or trying to hurt him. It takes a strong person to deal with that type of abuse and ridicule on a daily basis. Most of us could never continue to go on if we were treated the way Michael was treated.

It is not just "mass hysteria" that make people follow Michael. He had amazing music, amazing talent and has contributed greatly to humanity and that is why we admire him.

Yes we must recognize that there are everyday heroes that have contributed to society as well; and the media does not talk about them in detail, but don't knock Michael down just because he was recognized in many ways. That is the media's doing, and Michael always recognized the everyday heroes because he had the medium to let the world know who they were.

Heal The World Lyrics by Michael Jackson

There's a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tommorow
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need to cry
In this place you'll feel 
There's no hurt or sorrow
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space
Make it a better place.....

Chorus

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make it a better place for you and for me
If you want to know why
There's a love that cannot die
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear or dread
We stop existing and start living
Then it feels that always 
Love's enough for us growing
So make a better world
Make a better world
Chorus....
An the dream we were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once we believed in
Will shine again in grace
The why do we keep strangling life
Wound the earth crucify its soul
Though it's plain to see
This world is heavenly
Be God's glow
We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart
I feel you are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we cry happy tears
See the nations turn their swords
Into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space
To make a better place...

Chorus....
