    Thank you again for everything you do. I am an older supporter of Michael, and listening to you ,reading and watching everything that I can find out there from younger generations from ordinary people to the most educated brings me peace.This year it was hard for all of us. I haven’t watched LN but it feels like I have,and I don’t have any interest on watching it,what hurt me most is how ignorant people believe everything so easy, and how victim playing has become fashion,no one is safe anymore,it’s a new way of making money or get back on someone if you have an agenda against them,that doesn’t mean that I don’t believe that they are victims out there real victims with out fault of their own. I never believed anything that came out of those men’s mouths,by the time the movie came out I knew so much through vindicating Michael from Helena that whatever they said it was rubbish ,but what hurt me was how the media was responding not the ordinary people the media,so much so that I stopped watching television and just listening to 3W radio station and I haven’t gone back since then, and plus the fact that I had the same upbringing as Michael (without the abuse)am talking about the sleepovers not just me almost everyone it was a way of life and we knew nothing about sex and we never thought sexual,and in many cultures sleepovers it’s very common,that’s why I don’t think wow sleepovers children with older people something wrong we actually felt protected,anyway for me Michael was the epitome of what a good person should be,or try to be without being perfect,and you come across as naive because you don’t want to hurt others especially children thinking that there are innocent,for me Michael other your understood him and love him and be the best that you can be,or your misunderstood him and be the worst of your self that you can be .For me once you learn about the real Michael Jackson and what he stood for you’ll feel guilty not to at least try to be a good person.when I think what this man had to go through from a five years old till the day he died and even after death it breaks my heart, and he never gave up. I do believe these people even if they make some money out of all this they will leave their rest of the lives in turmoil including their families and their children. I wish all of you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year,love and peace for all of us and thank you again all of you,I’ve been listening to you from the day you started,and I enjoyed every minute of it, you can tell that all Michaels fans are good people and fighting for truth and justice, and hopefully one day his children will make a decent movie about Michael’s life,you can tell that they love the movie industry and I think they gonna be very good at it.Thank you again.
