Tribute Events for Michael Jackson on June 25, 2010

For June 25, ***2010***

originally posted June 3rd, updated as neededLast summer the world lost an icon, a phenomenon, a humanitarian, an "angel walking the planet". As the internet crashed and the breaking news sent shockwaves across the globe, three beautiful children lost the best daddy in the world and a family was left mourning the tragic loss of a brother, son, cousin and uncle, as others mourned a beloved friend. And while thousands moonwalked to Billie Jean in the streets, CDs flew off the shelves in every country, candles were lit and the praises of the true King of Pop, Rock and Soul were once again sung en masse, some of us simply sat weeping, too devastated to move, too shocked to breathe. To Michael Jackson's devoted fans, he was not just an icon or a legend; he was family. He was (or rather, IS and always will be) as close in our hearts as a dear family member, a best friend, a healer, a spiritual teacher for many, our inspiration and our strength. He changed lives and awoke people to the call of love and the mission to heal the world. And we stood by Michael, we defended him, we believed in him and we loved him when so many in the world would rather have seen him crucified. Words cannot express how deeply into the soul love can go or how utterly destroyed one can feel after a day like June 25th. But love, like the soul, goes on ... and what we do with it may be as important for the world as it is for us. So whether you're a 'new' fan, an 'old' fan or just enjoy his music, let us celebrate him with that love, let us bow our heads in respect, let us spread the L.O.V.E. in his honor, let us change the world in loving memory of Michael Jackson. And may we never allow the world to forget this amazing man, his caring, his kindness and the magical gifts of joy and hope he gave us all. Thank you, Michael. We miss you and love you so very much. You are forever in our hearts.

thankz MLP for this info!
Long Live our Angel!

Hi!♥ I believe the sunflowers are delivered on Fridays by the FL flower shop. I checked the FB page of the SoCal fan group that goes on the 3rd and they seemingly did go today, so you must've just missed them. I think it's so amazing and sweet that folks in the area do this for the rest of us. Many of us live way too far from California to go ourselves, so they are our only way to get something there. Thank you so much, you guys! It really means so much. ♥ ♥ ♥

Thank you MLP for posting all of this information in one space. This is the place that I'll be coming to obtain info for June 25, 2010 events. Sending a MAJOR L.O.V.E. to you. -Kim (windy09)

Thankyou so much for all the information about events for June 25th and all the other info. It makes me feel so happpy to know that Michael has spread and continues to spread so much love and deep emotion around the planet. I am far away from California (London) and for the moment I don't see any imminent date at which I will be able to visit Michael's resting place....but I will be there at some point in the future....However, for now I join the Major love prayer each month, which gives me a powerful sense of strength and inspires me to want to do more for our planet. I find that it also renews my faith in mankind and sends me forth with a special smile each 26th! On 25th June I will be joining a large group in London for MJ World Cry 2010, where we will be creating a tribute of Teardrop messages for Michael and takimg part in a sponsored moonwalk for SOS children's charity (for orphaned children worldwide). Let's keep spreading Michael's message of hope, love and healing for our planet and most importantly our future and the future of our children. A special thankyou again for this awesome site and my love to all Michael's fans in every corner of our planet. Sending a MAJOR L.O.V.E. and special Michal hugs!!!xxxxx

A vibe of Major Love to you BeGodGlow! An opportunity to be One in love and peace. Love is the question and Love will remain the answer.
Your work is cherished by those who remain loyal to the cause.

We need MORE of this. Less division, more love. Mass meditation- the more people desire to raise their consciousness, the easier the Love will come.

How can it be that it is already a year? A year of transformation for many of us. From disbelief, to crushing grief, we were all in pain. But, the breakthrough is the LOVE....it has the potential to change and heal the world. Michael may be gone in the physical sense but he is more present that ever, guiding us to make that change. An incredible spirit with a mission to make this world the paradise it should be....

Love you Michael...for ever.

I just wanted to post a message of thanks and love to all of those who attended the London event at the Trocadero, Picadilly Circus last night. The event was beautiful. It was, for me, and I know for many others who were there, an extremely emotional evening. However, as we said it was also fun.....because we were there to celebrate Michael. A wall of teardrop tributes to Michael was created and lots of us moonwalked....or should I say..."tried to moonwalk". We lit our candles, then stood in silence at 10.26, after which we all sang Cry. After that there were several tears, but the tears turned to joy as we all did another en masse Moonwalk and then we were treated to a fantastic perfomance of Thriller by the organiser (you were brilliant). A lot of money was raised for the SOS orphaned children's charity....not sure how much...but the main thing was we were, and I am sure will continue to do what Michael always did....help others. It's all for love, L.O.V.E. Ana.xxxxx
