I never believed those charges either and think it was all about preying on a celebrity for monetary gain. And it is easy to shoot a visible target.
As one who has no interest WHATSOEVER in popular music, the news left me sad but not grief-stricken. But my husband pointed out that MJ was a spectacular artist -- he has seen his performances live - not I -- and said that it is not hard to understand why in Britain MJ is considered second to only the Beatles by many British fans, and fans around the world. The BBC online had some innovative coverage this morning. So yes, it has to be a great loss for many people for many reasons.
ਗੁਰ ਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਹੀਣਸ੍ਯ੍ਯ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਣੀ ਧ੍ਰਿਗੰਤ ਜਨਮ ਭ੍ਰਸਟਣਹ ॥
That mortal who lacks the Guru's Mantra - cursed and contaminated is his life.
ਕੂਕਰਹ ਸੂਕਰਹ ਗਰਧਭਹ ਕਾਕਹ ਸਰਪਨਹ ਤੁਲਿ ਖਲਹ ॥੩੩॥
That blockhead is just a dog, a pig, a jackass, a crow, a snake. ||33||
ਜੋ ਨ ਸੁਨਹਿ ਜਸੁ ਪਰਮਾਨੰਦਾ ॥ ਪਸੁ ਪੰਖੀ ਤ੍ਰਿਗਦ ਜੋਨਿ ਤੇ ਮੰਦਾ ॥੩॥
Those who do not listen to God's Praises, are worse off than beasts, birds or creeping creatures.||3||
Any person with a little bit of heart can easily see the saddness in his eyes. If you watch his videos from childhood on,you can see the change of his soul. In stead of calling someone who is know longer present on this earth horrible names we should pray wherever he goes that God bestows his Grace on him. Also we should look in our own closets before pointing fingers. We are the last to judge ourselves.
