Editor's Note: With the all day Michael Jackson Memorial coverage, Some were very pleased to see the coverage and asked that CNN stay away from the “negativity” during the day. Others offered memories of the singer and what he meant to them.
- Linda T: We as fans do not want to hear all the negativity today. Pay some RESPECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In one minute you say something good about him, the next 20 minutes you degrade him. Shame on you CNN. Al Sharpton is so right!
- Joshua: Through out the years of time the world has lost many great talented artistes. It is sad to say Michael Jackson is now a part of that group. Michael's spirit will live on for ever in the hearts and minds of his loyal fans across the world. We must always remember the example Michael set by starting with the man in the mirror; and that's just what he did. We to need to take a look in our mirrors and do every day the best we can to make this ever changing world a better place for the people of today and to marrow. With Gods Help and the example Michael has left we all can help to make this world a better place...THANK YOU MICHAEL!
- Earnestine: Thank you CNN for broadcasting good things about the Late Michael Jackson. I know that his family knows that many around the world is praying for them right now. I just wish Michael could have felt the love for him and his work by his fans. If I could just get one message to the family, I would like to say "God sees all and knows all.” Let not your hearts be troubled. Everything will be alright now. Michael is at home, at peace, and resting. We loved him but God loved him best. He did so much for humanity, his reward is in heaven now. I will miss him – the man and I'll always keep the family in my prayers. My tears are just temporary, but the love will be remembered though all times.
- Linda R : With all due respect to Michael Jackson, he was a genuine gift to the arts. Talented, philanthropic, kind and gentle, terribly misunderstood and abused by hangers-on, and even by some of those he trusted. Rep. Peter King, the Republican congressman from N.Y., is an ignorant, crude individual, the personification of the "base", that tiny portion (thank God it's "tiny) of the population that still admires Bush and Palin. I read that Michael's fans are now trying to raise lots if money to defeat this moron in the next election, and I hope they succeed. His horrid insults and slanderous remarks against Michael are being largely ignored. However, having said that, I hope that after today, The 24/7 coverage will finally end, and we can get back to reporting the "real news", the stuff that concerns our survival. Also, I must add that I will really feel sorry for Larry King, who it appears has been adopted by the Jackson family. He may have to resort to "retro" stuff, like covering Elvis and John Lennon again. Seriously though, please, go back to the news.
- David: I graduated from the Boston Conservatory of Music in 1969. I appreciate the quality of music that Michael Jackson brought into this world. I am a band, strings, and guitar teacher in public school. I am also studying to be a pastor. It is a real pity that Michael and so many other gifted people have fallen pray to drugs in our society. He was brilliant to say the least! But only one thing can give you that peace that Michael was lacking, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Peace be with you all!
- Yvonne: Michael Jackson will live on in my memories, I have not gone to bed one night since, without having dreams of his death. I watched him in concert in Florida 1985, he left a lasting impression on me. He is such a talent. I mourn his loss and wish his family all the best. For those who has nothing good to say about Michael Jackson, I suggest you search your selves, something is radically wrong with your mind and the way you think about people, you obviously have racial issues.
Share your memories of Michael Jackson
Governor Palin was less a focus, while some still believed she was a “quitter.”
- Richard: Maybe it's just me, Gov Palin. Abdicating your DUTIES to the folks that elected you sure sounds like a quitter, not a fighter. Shame, shame.
After seeing the interview of Governor Palin with Drew Griffin, has your opinion of her changed? What do you think her next step will be? Would you like to see her in political office at the presidential level?
