Michael Jackson, remembering lost innocence

 

Dr. Alveda King: Celebrity Passings Remind Us

of the Importance of Each Life

 

 

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., commented today on the deaths of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon.

 

“The passing of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Ed McMahon takes me back to another time,” said Dr. King, “a time that certainly had its turmoil, but that also had its promises.  The passing of these ‘stars’ reminds me of the days when ABC was a fresh and innocent song without hints of profanity or gratuitous sex; the time before beautiful Farrah became an Angel; and Ed and Johnny gave us late night television. Those were the days and times when life was precious in America. 

 

“The memories of Michael, Farrah, and Ed take us back 40 years and over 50 million abortions ago,” added Dr. King.  “They remind me and my fellow pro-life civil rights warriors how the choices we make shape not only our lives, but the future of others.  They teach us yet again that one life can touch the world.”

    Kahil Gibran

    And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, “Speak to us of Children.”

    And he said:

    Your children are not your children.

    They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

    They come through you but not from you,

    And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

    You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

    For they have their own thoughts.

    You may house their bodies but not their souls,

    For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

    You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

    For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

    You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

    The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

    Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

    For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

    It seems ashame those who treasured Gibran’s poems for all these years have not listened to his wisdom. All life is sacred and unrepeatably unique!
