J-DAY, has arrived as the news of Michael Jackson's death has spreaded to every corner of of every hemisphere, except perhaps North Korea, it's time to lay the idol to rest. It's been a long journey from that faithful day to the spirit inspired memorial production taking place in the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Hopefully, this "final curtain call," will facilitate some closure for some and peace for his immediate family and children. God's speed and thanks for the sharing your talents across the globe. It's no doubt that you will be truly missed....

The Echo Of Life By: Author Unknown
A man and his son were walking in the forest. Suddenly theboy trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams, "Ahhhhh." Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain,"Ahhhhh!" Filled with curiosity, he screams: "Who are you?", but the only answer he receives is: "Who are you?" This makes him angry, so he screams: "You are a coward!",and the voice answers: "You are a coward!"
He looks at his father, asking, "Dad, what is going on?" "Son," the man replies, "pay attention!" Then he screams,"I admire you!" The voice answers: "I admire you!"
The father shouts, "You are wonderful!", and the voice answers: "You are wonderful!" The boy is surprised, but still can't understand what isgoing on. Then the father explains, "People call this 'ECHO', but truly it is 'LIFE!'
