Michael Jackson RIP

There really isn't anything to say about this icon that hasn't already been said.

I work in Westwood and my office window looks over the UCLA Medical Center which is where Michael was taken. Upon the news of him being rushed to the hospital and then later his death I was able to see helicopter after helicopter circle the medical center. At one point there were 6 different helicopters in my view from my office window, and traffic had backed up considerably. No matter what you think about this icon you can't deny his impact on society.

With that said I do remember watching the Motown 25th anniversary special and seeing the Moonwalk. The was a time before Tivo and DVRs, and we didn't even have a VCR. However to this day that was a performance that I'll never forget. I became one of the kids in elementary school that perfected the Moonwalk. That was a piece of joy and an unforgettable memory from childhood that Michael Jackson left with me.
