Yesterday millions of people gathered at Staples Arena in Los Angeles and in front of Televisions and live web feeds around the world to watch the memorial service for the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
Along with being one of the highest grossing entertainers in the world, Jackson was a humanitarian who used his fame to support those in need. Checktheweather.net reported in their memorial post for MJ that Jackson donated to the most non-profits of any other celebrity and was an environmental advocate.
Now that Jackson is gone will everyday citizens of the world pick up Jackson's advocacy work?
We see ya'll on youtube posting clips of masses of people moonwalking doing the thriller dance and offering their best renditions of Jackson's hits, but when will there be a mass action for the causes MJ cared about?
When will we see people taking mass trips to cancer wards to sing and visit sick children?
When will we see massive donations to the non-profits, school systems and small businesses that are now struggling because of the massive international financial crisis?
After making the world cry during Jackson's memorial will Usher bring together T.I.,Janet Jackson Keri Hilson, Beyonce and Drake for the next "We are the World" Anthem?
Only time will tell but for today we hope you take a moment to look at the man and/or woman in the mirror and decide to carry on Michael's legacy for changing the world.
