“Sadly, we live in a state of fear. Every day we hear of war, on the news, on the radio and television; in the newspapers…always of war. We hear of nations hurting each other, of neighbors hurting each others, of families hurting each others, and of children killing each other. We must learn to live and love each other before it’s too late. We have to stop!

We have to stop the prejudice. We have to stop the hating. We have to stop living in fear of our own neighbors.

Together, we can make a change in the world. Together we can help to stop racism. Together we can help to stop prejudice. We can help the world live without fear. It is our only hope. And without hope we are lost.” – Michael Jackson – Exeter, UK June 14th 2002

  1. I completely understand what you’re saying and no offense taken. It’s hard to know how Michael wld have aged. He seemed like he was ready to move on to the next stages of his life – film making, acting, etc – and the children wld have, of course, become increasingly important as they matured and he cld watch their lives develop. Death robbed us but Michael had been through enough and given enough. He was valiant but human. I miss him every day but you’re right. The world wld never let him rest.

      • I don’t say this to offend anyone, but after knowing what he went through in private, I now think more about what his life would have been like as he aged. As more time passes and scandals continue, I’m not so sure now that he would have been happy growing old. I remember what he said about it in Schmuley’s book. Don’t get me wrong, I will always, always miss him. I wish he was here for PPB, but I believe that he was tired of all that came with being “Michael Jackson” the star. He faced never ending lawsuits and problems. If he ever lost the ability to dance or sing, I don’t know if he could have accepted that.
