Although I am not a big music fan, I still feel touched by the passing of Michael Jackson. He wasn’t just a celebrity. His music composes the soundtrack of so many people’s lives. In the movie of my life, you would hear his music during the long commutes I once did, during the early mornings when I listened to the radio waiting for the caffeine to kick in, and during some of my aerobic workout sessions. His music is intimately woven into the fabric of the lives of a number of generations. For those who are music fans, I would imagine his death is enormous, a time for grief, remembering, and even self-reflection. We have lost an icon.
