"This Is It" - YES, It was.

Last Sunday afternoon, my Husband and I went to see "This is It." We bought our tickets 3 weeks in advance. We didn't want to take a chance on missing it...

Upon entering the theater, we were greeted with our very own "badges." I felt like we were really walking into a concert!

Oh, how I wish we were. I cannot even begin to tell you how great this movie was.

I've been a HUGE Michael Jackson fan for Y.E.A.R.S., so I already knew that this would be something special, but to see him in action, even if it was rehearsal footage, was AMAZING. He truly was a gifted artist. If you've seen the movie, you know what I'm talking about.

Let's just say there's a reason why he was called 'The King of Pop.'

Being 100% honest with you, I would have flown to London to see his show. I had planned on it already, in the back of my mind.

I will forever remember June 25th, 2009. It was the day I felt something go dark.

His world ended too soon.

He didn't have to die.

He didn't want to die.

He was ready to show us what he was made of.

He was ready to remind you what made him special.

Whether you were a fan of his or not, you cannot possibly say that the man that was Michael Jackson, was not a HUGE, and I mean HUGE influence over the music industry. Hello? Music videos!

He. Owned. Them.

It's a shame that no one will ever truly see what he was planning for us with his 'last curtain call, as he called it.

However, I can tell you... it would've been truly remarkable.

It would have been the show of all shows.

It would have been talked about for some time to come.

It would have made all other artists stand up and take notice.

I am sad.

"This Is It" would've been the pinnacle of his career.

"This Is It" would've been one of my most fondest memories.

This brings up a value that I hold dear: Be thankful for what you have. You never know how long you have it.

RIP Michael Jackson
August 1958 - June 2009
