The death of pop icon and music genius Michael Jackson has left a void in the world and an emptiness in our hearts! He was much loved for having impacted his family, friends, colleagues, fellow musicians, his fans and the big outside world in so many wonderful ways! And death always fills loved ones with grief and remorse!

Watching and listening to Michael Jackson’s videos and songs,  the endless coverage of his life and times on CNN and the other TV channels and reading about them in the media has left me awed and amazed at how wide and deep his influence was/is.


His family and friends remember only the nicest things about him – his love, his gentleness and kindness! His colleagues applaud his professionalism and hard work in achieving excellence in song and dance, and his astute business sense. His critics of course play up his weird ways, that unforgivable charge of child abuse and his business failures!

But remorse must fill the hearts of some of those who have wronged the man – whether in word or deed! And when there is remorse there is the desire to make up for it! Posthumously!

But then again there are some who don’t feel remorse simply because they don’t feel guilt simply because they don’t think they are or have been wrong! For this God will mete out the appropriate sentencing in due course!

I’m also reminded of something else that leads to an overwhelming sense of grief and remorse – the death of a relationship!

Say and think what you like, but there’s no doubt that if we have been sincere and honest in building up a strong partnership or family, when its ties are broken we will be deeply shattered!

Add to it our vows of  faith, fidelity and faithfulness and we will be grief-stricken and remorseful if not to the world outside definitely in our heart of hearts, in our soul of souls!

    Dear Aunty Halimah,

    That little tribute was beautiful. Rasa sebak bila baca. Alot of people misunderstood him in his last remaining years. What a kind soul he was. May God bless him in the after life.

    Yes Gina I feel so very sad although I wasn’t really a great fan. I liked some of his songs and I was at his KL concert in 1996 screaming along with the young crowd! His performance was superb!

    It was a revelation to see the tranquility in magnificence of his Neverland Ranch on Larry King yesterday! Even Larry King struggled for words as he understood better what MJ the man was about. And the gentleness of his brother Jermaine convinces me that Michael was a hundred times more!

    Al Fatihah!
