Like everyone else, I was shocked to hear of Michael Jackson's death yesterday. I agree that he was a very talented artist even though his music wasn't really my taste. However, I am displeased with how everything seemed to stop last night due to his death. There are so many other important things and sad things going on in our world, and I think we are really out of balance in the way that we treat celebrities.
Please don't get me wrong...there are many celebrities whose passing has made me sad. I'm in no position to point fingers. It just worries me that our society (and the media) makes these people out to be more important than they really are, or in other words, makes idols out of them. I pray that the world will begin to pay more attention to the King of Kings rather then the King of "Pop" or anything else.
