Grief: Balance of Equals

Every generation has its heroes, so I don't belittle the signifance of Michael Jackson's contribution to popular music and to his family, in particular this will be a difficult time.

I believe, without exception that on a world scale, we're all equal, it is just that some people accumulate more wealth and fame and so on but in the presence of our Creator, Allah, we're all the same. That means when people are maimed, injured and killed in the various conflicts around the globe, ever loss is as tragic as the loss of a superstar. Wasn't it MJ's sister, herself, Janet who once said that when the lights are out, "in complete darkness we are all the same".
