    The Memorial


    In harmony with the rest of the world, which Michael tried so hard and asked us so passionately to heal, fans of "The Greatest Entertainer That Ever Lived - TM" in Warsaw, PL came together once again to celebrate his life, his music, his passion, his beauty...

    I called onto my (Internet) brothers and sisters to join me in a public viewing of "The Memorial".

    With the help of several beautiful people we organized a get-to-together of prayer, music and goodwill. We met at the Palace of Culture and Science in the center of the city where viewing rooms had been prepared in one of the oldest cinemas in the city.

    There were tears and singing. There was rain and camera-lights. Both people and balloons were dressed in "Black and White". After releasing 500 balloons into the Eastern European sky, hoping they would somehow reach Michael, we settled down and watched the most moving event I have ever seen on television.

    It wasn't a farewell event...cos he's not gone. Music has, is and will always be.

    Thank you Michael.
