When someone dies, all good things are said. Yet at the time the person was still living, all the mockery and curses and bad mouthing were said. I am not only talking about MJ’s. Anywhere you attend memorial, eulogy is an expected piece. And sometimes, forgive me for this confession, I could not help but be skeptical about eulogy. In my point of view, good things and good deeds and good word must be extended when the person was rather breathing. It is good to know the dead man during memorial, but it is rather more fitting and right to show those acts of kindness when the person can still respond.
Anyway, when Brooke Shield honored Michael Jackson, I was moved and emotional. I sensed genuine friendship. And it was admirable.
