Meet Christian!: In the Spotlight
Love Through A Child's Heart Files
"Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts. This has so much to teach."
-From the poem "Children," Dancing the Dream, by Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson knew at a very early age what it takes many of us a lifetime to learn: children can teach us so much. Michael loved all the children of the world. And to carry on Michael's legacy of Love for the children, I think it is very important to look for ways that will inspire the youth of today to become positive role models of tomorrow. So, my desire is that you will be enlightened by these stories from our younger generation. Periodically, we will shine the spotlight on one of our youth. Some stories will include volunteers, community leaders, those with special needs or talents in art/music/poetry/drama and members inspired by Michael to become a better person. Whatever the case may be, Michael Jackson had an impact on all of these young people and here are their stories. Enjoy!

Christian age 5, also known as “ChrisPeterPan,” joined The Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait on August 25, 2010. This little Peter Pan flew his way into my heart when he made a post earlier this month to one of my articles. I have asked Christian's mother, Tanya (TIARRA) to share with you her son's story (please note in parts you may need a tissue; I know I did!) :
Adding to this emotional and touching story, sunflowers now grow in Tanya and Christian's garden, because they know of Michael's love for sunflowers, as he called them the “Happy Flower.” Tanya states on her profile (TIARRA), "Now every time I go outside and see my flower, that makes me smile and think of Michael.” Thank you so much, Christian, for sharing your story with us.
We encourage each of you to leave messages for Christian, in the comment box below. You may also visit his profile by clicking on this link ChrisPeterPan.
