Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Kids Celebrate Late Dad's Birthday In Hometown

Michael Jackson's kids returned to their late dad's hometown in Gary, Indiana to celebrate what would have been the pop star's 53rd birthday on Monday (29Aug11).
Making a rare public appearance, Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, nine, visited the King of Pop's boyhood home over the weekend (27-28Aug11) and took part in the city's celebrations to mark the occasion.
Hundreds of fans gathered outside the home where Jackson grew up to honour the tragic hitmaker, and Paris was delighted to see so many followers keeping her father's legacy alive.
Speaking to local TV station Abc 7, she said, "We adjusted over the past years. And I think that coming here, seeing our dad's old house, and all the fans coming out, I think it is really sweet they did that."
And Blanket admitted the gesture to revisit their dad's roots helped them feel close to the legend once again, adding, "It's good to see the place where our dad grew up."
The children, who were joined by Michael's parents, Katherine and Joe Jackson, also signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans and community members.

This was a good idea. It's time that Michael's kids get to see where he grew up and they need to know the truth about their Dad's history outside of his life on stage. They need to see and hear it from the people who knew him and who raised him and who loved and lived with him and that is Michael's family and true friends who knew all about the life their Dad lived because if they hear what the press and the haters of this wonderful human being might say they would live a life of hurt unnecessarily. Michael loved his children with his whole being and they loved him and always will. No matter what that much they do know and that can't be taken away from them, so all the best to Prince, Paris and Prince ll (blanket) and Happy Birthday, Michael and RIP because we will always love you and you deserve to rest !!

Michael raised his children to care for those less fortunate. Going to Gary to see his childhood home allowed PPB to see that at one time their father was one of those very people. His genius, hard work and dedication allowed him to create a better life for his own children and millions of children all over the world - something that should NEVER be forgotton. God bless you, Michael. The world is a darker place without you...
