The life and death of Michael Jackson...here are a few of my thoughts:
No, there should not be a national holiday named after him. Yes, his family should have to pay the millions of dollars to provide all the security surrounding his memorial services (not the state of California, which is in fiscal crisis as it is.) Yes, he revolutionized the pop music and culture of our time, but I can think of other heroes worthy of our consideration.
My Questions: Why are we eulogizing such a broken icon? What good did he do if he wasn't comfortable in his own skin?
I am honored to be married to my husband extraordinaire Joseph, for 15 years. Our joy is full (most days) because we are blessed to have these children in our family: Joshua (12yrs), Emma (10 yrs), Caleb (7yrs), and Elizabeth (5 yrs.). I enjoy camping with my family, cooking, reading, playing and teaching the violin and blogging. Our story began over 15 years ago at Ricks College. We have moved 9 times in 14 years, but have come full circle to the city where we were married and sealed in the LDS temple.
