Remember when you first heard that Michael Jackson died? It was kind of a surreal moment because while you sort of expected crazy news out of someone who had become essentially a caricature, you still didn’t expect him to simply not exist.
Now, a few years later, I find it also a little strange when I was thinking about him and his music and realized that he too will be forgotten, like most things in life. Sure, there will be lots of times when we as humanity will gather to remember the “king of pop” but essentially the world isn’t going to miss him.
If someone like him could be forgotten, what hope is there for someone like us?
