  1. I think it best said to the people of the world that are bashing Michael Jackson-“Beat It”! It is just horrible that people want to keep bringing up things that don’t matter. The good book says “Judge not lest ye be judged.” So, let us remember the good things that he has given to the world. I love you Michael and I always will. God be with you and with your family.
