This experience with meeting all of you around the world has been a touching one for me personally. When the earthquake in Chile hit the news, my first reaction was to find out how those I had talked to about getting their MJ Opus were. It was a few days before I heard from Byfepo, and through those hours, I was scared for the worst.
Today, after trying to catch up on news and emails, I am reminded again how much this experience has touched me and brings home to me not only how precious life is, but how WE ARE THE WORLD. I have talked to people in over 47 countries. My ears perk up when the news conveys tragedy in one of those countries, almost as if I had a family member living there. I do. So do you! A Michael Jackson Family member.
Hearing the news of the recent metro bombing, claiming the lives of 39 people in Moscow, and injuring scores more, it has come home again. My first thought was knowing if my dear @Russia friend was okay (and she is) and now I must go through my emails again to find those who have written me from Moscow.
Please join with me and offer a prayer or gentle thought for our friends in Moscow who have been innocently killed because this world needs to be a better place to live. Because hatred for another human claimed the lives of sisters, brothers, fathers, sons, mothers, and dear friends.
Moscow, we grieve with you. We are part of this Earth, and we are all humans. We are not countries, or governments. We are people. It is through our common bond as fellow humans that we mourn when any of our world is lost.
Please leave a message below for those in Moscow to hear our L.O.V.E. We do have people from Moscow and Russia who visit this blog. Let your hearts and voices be heard.
