A year ago we were at my nephew's beautiful high school graduation... all the spectators were outside on the bleachers - what do I remember most??? My brother-in-law leaning into me and telling me "Michael Jackson just died"! The buzz quickly traveled through the bleachers (too many blackberries...instantnews)... By the time the ceremony was over and we were all on the field taking pictures...it was as the headline story!
It was one of those historic times you'll always remember where you were, similar to JFK's assassination, John Lennon, etc. - I've NEVER been a Michael Jackson fan, but admit he's a well known legend... Just one of those days I'll always remember!
