I Think About Michael's Children Almost on A Daily Basis
I find it a little "tricky" to get myself to believe that they are doing ".....just fine....." as per reports by various family members -- but you always hear the same thing...."they are playing with their cousins."
I know children can be very resilient. And I hope to God they are.
Part of my just thinks.......it can't be all that simple -- it can't be all that smooth......and it can't be all that 'fast' -- that they would "be doing great."
Then I say to myself ---- "Stop it. Why are you thinking about this. Why do you spend so much time thinking about Michael Jackson almost a whole year after his passing.
My father would have said to me, if he was still here "He's not part of your family. It's not right." I KNOW -- because that's what my father said to me when I grieved for 6 months after one of my Olympic figure-skating idols died suddenly -- Sergei Grinkov -- leaving his young wife/pairs partner and their little daughter. I couldn't get over it -- and my father basically told me "you have no business getting so emotionally worked up about people who are not in your family. It's not right."
SORRY DAD. I can't seem to just turn it off. I haven't found the faucets that go ON and OFF yet, that control my emotions.
I guess I don't find the world so overflowing with LOVE. And when someone like Michael comes along -- and he gives his love -- from such depths -- to all those who were his fans --- I experience such feelings of LOVE coming from him -- from HIS HEART --- that's some of the most genuine-feeling LOVE I've ever experienced in my life in this world.
And that's also why I can't imagine how his children can be coping with the loss of that kind of LOVE. I think about them and I just wonder. One thing I hope is that they stay very close to each other. Maybe that will help them.
