All you need is trust and a little bit of pixie dust..


Michael was magical all his life, he mesmerized people where ever he went. From the young boy to the recent Michael.. he left a trail of pixie dust and mysteries behind.
Some people in this world did not know how to handle this, but those that did truly loved him and still do. These people will know what I talk about, when talking about magic.

Paying tribute to Michael and caring for him, is what this blog was made for. And for some reason, I never get tired of doing just that..


Looking at the pictures of Michael in all his life stages, makes you think over and over again; “What a sweetheart!” He truly was a sweetheart, still is and will be forever. Period!
Michael’s music and personality has enough magic, to last at least a 100 more years to come, if not more. He loved fairy tales and to us he was a fairy tale himself.
He could set a stage of fantasies, and make people float away and dream with him. Both in concerts as well as in private. He loved life and he loved having fun living it..

But Michael was also about more serious messages. He wasn’t just the superstar, that once he reached the ultimate fame and wealth, just sat back and enjoyed the accomplished mission.

He used a lot of his own resources on charities and making statements like “Heal the World”. He was very concerned with the environment, this planet and how we treat each other. He kept on working for good causes, even in the years where he wasn’t performing.

The list of charities is long and impressive, and he was one of the very rare great humanitarians in this world.

Besides charities, Michael was working around the clock, polishing dance steps, developing new ideas, writing music, simply because he couldn’t stop..

One of 9 promotional statues of Michael from the European HIStory Tour 1995

 

For each concert tour he made, it got bigger and more spectacular. Every time, he had created something new and never seen before. If any, Michael should be the proof that only imagination sets the limits.

And as so he gets to be an inspiration for many musicians, entertainers or just you and me. An inspiration to make wishes come true, if you work hard enough or you are born with a remarkable talent, as he was. Or to be a better or kinder person. More giving, more generous or more loving.

Maybe Michael really was touched by God, but the essence is he always followed his heart. Even when some of the public didn’t find it appropriate, he still followed his heart and he was true to his own ideals. We can learn something from that.

On june 25th 2009 when his passing was a reality, the world went into a simultaneous shock and time seemed to freeze. Out of all the imaginations we had about Michael, dying one day, wasn’t one of them. Really, he was just a human like the rest of us, and yet he was still something out of this world.

As the sad news was travelling all over the planet, he was remembered and celebrated as the biggest icon of this world. On every street corner you could hear radio’s playing his music, in every news headline all over the world, you could read his name. His name was on everybody’s lips and in everybody’s thoughts at that time.

In Brazil, in the streets where TDCAU was recorded, they planned to erect a statue of Michael, and in Mexico people gathered at the Angel of Independence monument, to pay their tributes. These gatherings and tributes took place all over the world in major cities.

The Angel of Independence Monument in Mexico City August 30, 2009. Fans dance to the song at the event called "Mexico dances Beat It."

His music became the most downloaded and most selling in a split second. He was back as # 1 in the charts.
The love for Michael, all over the globe, has never been more overwhelming or spontaneous, as it was in those days following june 25th 2009. It was simply pouring out everywhere at the same time.

His dream finally came true; he had the greatest show at the greatest stage ever in history.
But unfortunately this was also the final show. The final curtain call.

We have been blessed with living in the same time as Michael. We know him from ourselves and from our past, not from the history books. The future generations will depend on us to convey the greatness of his shining star. Because we are the generation that lived to tell.

We all have an obligation to tell the truth about Michael, to portray him with dignity as the human he was, so if you want to pay tribute to Michael, then do it to him – the whole person – and not only the icon and the myth.

Michael was and is a shining star, and perhaps we will never again see another star shining so bright for so long. One thing is sure though; Michael’s star will shine bright for many more years to come. We can make it keep shining, by not destroying the magic and the trail of pixie dust he left behind.. he was unique in the most unique way there is. Honour that.

Let’s respect and protect his memory.

God bless you, Michael, where ever you are..

    This is one of the most touching blogs you wrote,Zilda.Line after line,memories of those sad days,came to my mind…and tears too.It was really an incredible event that simultaneous pouring of LOVE,tributes,record sellings…all because of Michael.A man can reach mountains highest tops,unthinkable degrees of knowledge,score world records,but Michael REACHED our hearts with his music,dance moves,good deeds.To honour him,his talent,is to pass on his legacy.
    In his poem,”Planet Earth”,he said…”Do you care? Do you have a part,in the deepest emotions of my own heart?”…Well,i do…and so you would.

      You’re right Netoska.. This is a very touching blog Zilda wrote and after reading it again i wished that people would remember him like Zilda decribed here or simply just remembering him like he was.. We are the ones to tell people in years from now about Michael Jackson and I am truly honored by living in the time where I got the chance to see and hear Michael..
      I don’t want my child to find stuff about Michael on YouTube because you can’t find anything decent there anymore and this is NOT how he should be remembered… This is way to sad to see these disgusting videos on YouTube…

      Thank you Zilda for writing about Michael as he really was and I can’t wait to tell my child about the REAL Michael

    Yes Zilda,I know what are you talking about,I know how magical Michael was all his life and beyond.He has had his Everest to overcome and he did it.We have the privilege to be the generation”that lived to tell”(like you said) and it is an obligation,a duty and also an opportunity we portray Michael as the man he was for the future generations.I feel blessed living in the same time as Michael,and also sad I saw the final curtain call.But nothing compares to be contemporaneous with the biggest legend,the biggest humanitarian,the most remarkable human being on earth.
    GOD BLESS MICHAEL ,THE PEOPLE HE LOVED AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE HIM!!!

    As always Zilda….Touching and profound. *hugs* We are indeed blessed to have lived in the time of Michael Jackson. I am humbled on a daily basis by his music, thoughts and perceptive insights. His true innocent nature, his numerous gifts in just about everything, and perhaps most of all…his capacity to FORGIVE. It never….HE never….ceases to amaze me. The world, and especially his children, have lost an incredible gift. The TRUE definition of Enigma if there ever was one.

    I love you Michael, may God bless you and your family, and help those of us who TRULY know your heart, continue to spread your message of love. LOVE LOVE LOVE! 🙂 And to make sure your legacy is told with the honor, and truth of your innocence, along with the humble and healing messages you tirelessly fought for your entire life. In a time when many seem possessed and obsessed with trying to destroy you, you rose above it all, continued to love, continued to smile, continued to dream, continued to hope, continued to create, and although hurt and betrayed sooo many times…. continued to have faith in the human race. I don’t think I could be that strong. I am genuinely in AWE!!

    Darling Michael, our sweet Enigma, you are proof to me and so many others, that indeed, “LOVE LIVES FOREVER” 🙂

    Just…….WAUW! Zilda you know how to touch someone right into the heart. At least you touched mine with this blog. I have goosebumps and tears in my eyes. But i have a big smile on my face too because remembering him like he was, the biggest entertainer of all times, his huge heart and his compasion for the planet and the human race. He is a star no matter if he is on his cloud in heaven or somewhere here on earth.

    ”Let’s respect and protect his memory. ”
    ok zilda, do you believe that he is dead, why don’t you keep living your life as many non-believers are doing?? it’s better for you and for mj’s memory. trust me! so much negative energy is not good for his memory!

    • August 18, 2010 at 02:19

      @MJalive999:
      I am sorry to hear you find this negative, it surely wasn’t intended that way. Michael wanted the world to believe he died, or he did die. I am only respecting his wish and treating him like he did die.

      How does non believers live their lives? Are they not allowed to speak their minds or pay tributes to MJ, or remember him with dignity? I wasn’t aware that this group of fans, that do not believe in your hoax, had to be quiet. I am not a non believer, but I do not believe in your hoax, if that is what you refer to – a non believer believes in nothing, I just don’t believe in the same as you do. Why do you divide people into these groups? What’s wrong with being a fan?

        August 18, 2010 at 12:06

        his wish? are u kidding me??? and about all evidences that he is NOOOT dead???if he wanted everyone to believe he has died, he would have done it right. he would have DIED right. do you have doubts about heath ledger death?? NO! about lady di ‘s death? NO. stop acting like his lawyer because YOU ARE NOT. you also acts like was the only person in the world who spreads love… fake love imo! ”What’s wrong with being a fan?” what is the problem with you?? are u putting people against others and you have courage to speak like that??? i hope you are kidding girl. i am serious.

        DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE MJ! IT’S EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING! ”his wish” omg you make me laugh!

          @Mjalive999

          Why in the world do you think Michael left clues for you to find him??? I am sure if he infact did this he had a very good reason and no if he is alive he will not come back… If he infact did this I am positive that he would never ever ask a bunch of people to digg in his life just to find him..
          But why not remember him like the Michaael Jackson you know??? Why is it necessary to tear him apart and his family??? They haven’t done anything to his fans why do they have to be treated like they are treated???

          @Zilda

          Theres is absolutly nothing wrong being a fan… And there is absolutly nothing wrong with this blog at all.. I have read all the blogs here and I only agrees with what’s being said here.. I cannot find one word from any of the authors here that is disrespectful..
          All I have to say to all the authors here is keep moving on you’re doing a good job..
          Thumbs up 🙂

      Why are you so sure he left “clues”? What is wrong with what we do here?? We don’t attack or bash anyone, we are just putting out our opinion. Or is that right onky intitled to the ones who are believeing in those “clues”?

      @ carmen_jessie “DO NOT OVERESTIMATE THE “HOAX”STORY.IT”S EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING”EXACTLY!! very wise words Thank you!!

    MJalive999,this is offensive to Zilda and to us,because we are her friends and we are all here for the same reason:love and respect for MJ and his memory.If,for some reason,you find it negative,you don’t need to come here.Enjoy your “hoax” and your imaginary clues and keep playing hide-and-seek.We consider Zilda’s posts are wonderful,logical and in common sense limits.You can see in her posts love and devotion for MJ,we appreciate this very much because we are feeling the same manner.So please don’t bother yourself to be rude again.
    DO NOT OVERESTIMATE THE “HOAX”STORY.IT”S EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

      yeeeeeees, imaginary clues! rip MJ. poor thing sooo dude!

      pfui

      if you guys have your own opinion, its ok. but offending people, judging them or pretending to be in the position to classify real fans from fake fans, this is not ok anymore

      that is my last message btw. we don’t share the same imaginary world:)

      and RIP mj 🙂 (according to you, of course)

      • August 18, 2010 at 23:46

        and what offensive material do you find in “All you need is trust and a little pixie dust”? It is a tribute to Michael, so I did not write any offensive things in here.

        I am asking that, since you are commenting here in this particular blog post. This is a tribute and you as a fan should not be arguing in here.

        • KiraLovesMichael (VampKira)
          August 19, 2010 at 00:18

          Un-REAL. 😦 Why do these people care if this blog has a particular belief, just as they do? This is really sad, and i couldn’t agree more with you. This is NOT a place for such a debate. Poor Michael would be appaled and offended by these particular “attack mob” type of posts by and to one of his fans!! Do they know ANYTHING about him??? sheesh….:(

          • lisalittleme
            August 19, 2010 at 00:27

            Sadly it doesn’t look like they respect him at all.. Yes if MJ was here he would be disgusted on how they treat him.. He doesn’t need, what he thought was his fans, to do this to him…
            They are attacking him, his family and his children and yet not one hoaxer can answer the question I asked in my blog because they think it is okay to invade MJ but I’ll bet they would hate if someone was digging in their familys life..
            Sad as it is…

    Hi I dont want u to take this the wrong way, but Michael was trying to get a message across by his music, and the effect he had/have on people is unique. (I think only Jesus can be a comparrason to him in that sense.) Alot of the things the media said about him he also was the one who started it. I have the greatest respect for him and I also think he is not so much the victim all the time. What l think of him is only based on his music and lyrics/ poems and l think he is very much more than we can fathom at the moment. I wish all the best to you. l.o.v.e.

    It is said by many that MJ was a genius, so if he is alive, what is happening in the media is just what he wants to happen. We are all influenced on these blogs by other peoples opinions and videos. Those opinions and videos are influenced by what we read and see in the media. So be careful what influences your opinion. If he is alive, he is sitting back somewhere reading all of the blogs or he has a team of people doing so, so that he can keep an eye on who is getting too close to the truth of what happened that day and the days to follow even up until now. He would want to know our opinions of him, he would want to know the opinions of many to see who still believes in him and who understands his message. I’m sure he would want to comment on all of this debate but must know that peoples opinions are hard to sway. I will say once again, if he wanted his whereabouts known, he would reveal it himself. I really think that if he is alive, he really just wants to be left alone to continue on in peace and anonymity. Getting sued for every little thing you do and say can get tiring and can damage your trust in people. I don’t blame him for remaining silent. Personally, I like reading all of these blogs to see everyone’s point of view on things. Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing when used correctly.
