As with the Creative Geniuses of their time such asBethoven, Mozart, Bach and the rest we find thatwhen they have left us, they receive the recognition theyshould have received during their lifetime. The vast void that we have with Michael's passing in the World of Music, Dancing and the Entertainment Industry has become a reality that his World WideDevoted Fans' have only just begun to deal with. Devoted Fan, M.H.

Although to honor Michael only after he'd passed is a little late, it is glad to find the media is gradually giving back what Michael deserved long ago.However it appears that no honorary recognition has been given to his humanitarian work except on the Guinness records. Do we need to voice for that too?

Michael Jackson will never be forgotten. I'm happy to see that people are still honouring him a year after his death. I look forward to seeing "Gone Too Soon", the new documentary about his final days. It should be very interesting.
