family - dad and me

A daughter's voice

The hype around Michael Jackson this last week or two has been getting really old.. but his daughter's words today at his memorial echo the words of all daughters who have lost their fathers at a young age. I said something similar at my own father's memorial service, and I am sure that many, many children have said them. And they need to be said and heard.

"Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just wanted to say I love him — so much." — Jackson's daughter, Paris-Michael, who broke down in tears.

Amen, Paris. Amen.
