All over the news you hear anchors asking, "Why?" Now what kind of question is that?? Why not? He's a human being, just like everyone else. And if you ask me I think it was pretty obvious how sickly and fragile the man was.
While everyone is completely shocked and mourning his death, I wonder what all the hype is about. Here's a man, who was in his 50's and died of a natural cause. Why aren't we more moved, upset, and effected by those who innocently die and suffer at the hands of disgusting and cold hearted people? What's more surprising? Why is dying because of cardiac arrest at 50 more shocking than the children who witness their parents being slaughtered in front if them? Why is that more shocking than the pigs who rape women? How is a natural death more shocking than all the atrocities mankind endows upon other people?
Sure, it's a reminder than no matter who you are, what you have, or how recognized you are, your health and body can "turn on you" in the split of a second. But isn't that something we already know? This is a natural process. The murdering, raping and dehumanizing of other people is not, and should be recognized and mourned more than anything else. Almost all coverage of Iran has ceased for Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett.
Anyway, I don't say this to be in any way disrespectful to him or his family, just hoping people would recognize that life goes on. MJ is gone but the world is still a mess. He left behind his kids, his property, his music, his fans, and no one or nothing is in that coffin with him protecting him for what Allah may have in store. All I can hope is that a couple months ago when it was reported that he took his shahadah that he truly was a Muslim in his heart. I hope that inshaAllah he said his shahada. And I wish the best for his kids who are now without their loving father.
Hey, and don't get too giddy with all the MJ songs playing on the radio and on TV haha
