We search for their faults and their dirty little habits that seem to light up the television screams. They clog up the blogs, forums, chat rooms and u-tubes on the internet.

However; when ever a negative story comes out we thrive on it. And when it’s about a celebrity we eat it up like vultures. What does this say about us? If we want to truly remember a legend admirably we must focus on the magnificent gifts they shared with us. They gave us a precious gift that touched us in some way. Throw their garbage and skeletons into the trash of your mind. Delete it from your subconscious. Whether you are a legend or a regular Joe, We all want to be remembered for the beauty with in us. Even if we’re not aware of it. Let’s remember are most recent living legend, “The incomparable Michael Jackson” for his beautiful music, dance and amazing stage performances.
