28. Welcome to a New Blog
Welcome to my blog. As the Director of Community Development my responsibility is to empower dot members with the tools, motivation and inspiration to stay focused on Michael's mission, carry out his legacy and keep love in the forefront of our lives.
With the passing of our most beloved Icon, comes the responsibility of fans, friends, and family to ensure that his life has meaning beyond his passing. We can do that by remembering that his message was always love. I believe that Michael had a higher level of awareness than most, about the power and effects of love. Since he has worldwide appeal to millions of people, he has the potential to in turn raise the level of the world's awareness about the power of love.
In a video he made for his kids, he wished for them to learn the true meaning of success, which is Love. About the tour he was planning to do in July called “This Is It” he said, “It’s all for Love. L-O-V-E.” In his book Moonwalk he spoke about his dream of uniting the world through love: “It’s been my dream since I was a child to somehow unite people of the world through love and music. I still get goose bumps when I hear the Beatles sing ‘All you need is Love.’ I’ve always wished that song could be an anthem for the world.”
Those weren’t just empty words. He worked hard to make that dream a reality. A lot of his songs are filled with positive messages meant to inspire people. During his tours he gave meaningful performances that taught us how to love and heal the world. He visited orphanages before his concerts and donated millions of dollars to many of them. He embraced his fans with love. Even to the point of letting some of them come up on stage just to hug him.
Now it is our responsibility to make sure that his life was not in vain. How do we do that? We pick up the torch of Love and run with it. Every time we move forward in love we affirm everything Michael believed in, stood for and embodied. Every time we move forward in hate, we negate everything Michael worked so hard to accomplish.
My future posts will be in the spirit of keeping this tribute a positive and friendly place to discuss our love and appreciation for Michael Jackson. That is why my blog is called "It's All About Love." Our goal is to make this a place to celebrate the good and carry on his legacy.
We ask that all members please take a moment to review the Terms of Membership.
Lots of L.O.V.E.
Director of Community Development
