Michael Continues to be Remembered

Michael Jackson continues to be remembered by his children and the world. Most recently, his brood participated in a hand and footprint ceremony in front of the famous Grauman Chinese theater. Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket all helped make imprints of their late father's black loafer-style shoes and his trademark sequined glove into the concrete block. At the top of the block "Michael Jackson" was written by Paris, with a heart separating his first and last names. As the children imprinted images their dad's belongings, the crowd showed them love by cheering. Also in attendance was Mr. Justin Bieber, supposedly because Michael was his idol. He sang a bit of "Rockin' Robin" (without any instrumental accompaniment) as a tribute. He also posed in pictures with Michael's children, which seemed a little inappropriate. It looked like Bieber felt a little out of place, too, judging from the look on his normally sunshiny face. Even though the Biebs has said he wants to be of the same status as Michael someday, it's unlikely that it will happen, IMHO.

Michael's mom, Katherine Jackson, was present. Tito and Jackie, two of Michael's brothers, were also there. It's nice to see the family support -- especially for the children.

Speaking of children, little Blanket had his characteristic scowl on his face. He also had some defensive posture going on, like arms across his chest during the ceremony. Maybe because of his age he has a harder time dealing with the death of his father and all of the issues and events he must face. It's my hope Michael's family can find peace.
