Honoring The Dead: How Do You Show Love For Those Who’ve Passed?
Earlier this month, Paris Jackson (the 14-year-old daughter of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson) tweeted a picture of a shrine she created for her father (see right).
The collage seems to be directly above the teen’s bed and according to the tweet took three hours to complete.
I missed the tweet, but according to Stop the Presses!, not every response was positive:
Apparently, some fans considered Paris’s work to be a bit over-the-top, but Michael’s adoring only daughter doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her work. “Someone commented on my pic saying “obsessed much?'” she noted on Twitter. “Yeaa u better believe it…a whole wall of his pics is the LEAST i could do.”
Personally, I don’t think the Wall O’ Michael shows anything more than Paris’s love and respect for her father. Maybe she was feeling nostalgic or a little blue that day and needed a boost. Maybe she was feeling cheerful and just wanted to express that.
Whatever the reason, creating the collage seems to have been her way of honoring her father that day.
What are some of the ways you’ve honored the dead?
