People are celebrating Michael Jackson's birthday. Should we honor servicemen instead?

  • Yes, servicemen deserve the positive attention more than Michael Jackson.

    Servicemen deserve the positive attention of the nation and the media more than Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is an accused child molester, and while he was never convicted, that can be attributed to the fact that all the accusations were settled out of court. Our servicemen do difficult jobs in high-pressure and often hazardous conditions. They do more to protect and serve this country than Michael Jackson did. Additionally, many servicemen are still alive and would presumably benefit from the positive attention, while Michael Jackson is dead and cannot.

  • We can do both

    There's enough honor and celebration to go around. ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​

  • No, we should honor whomever we wish to honor.

    No, there is no requirement to honor one group above others. Michael Jackson created music that resonates with a lot of people. His work brings joy around the world. Sure he had personal issues, but so do servicemen. People should be allowed to honor whoever they admire in some way.

  • No, there is nothing wrong with people wanting to celebrate Michael Jackson's birthday.

    Michael Jackson was iconic in the music industry. Whether as a member of the Jackson 5 or as a solo artist, his songs impacted the music scene at the time and influenced future generations of music leaders and artists. His music videos changed the level of expectation for groups of every music genre. He recorded with fellow great musicians Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger, just to name a few. His Thriller video reintroduced a new generation to Vincent Price. As a musician, writer, producer and actor, he crossed racial barriers and excited audiences of all ages.

  • Can't we celebrate both?

    I don't understand how these two things are related. However, some people feel very close to Michael Jackson, his music played an important part in their lives. Why can't they celebrate the birthday of someone who, however indirectly, influenced their lives. Also celebrating a celebrity's birthday does not necessarily mean not honoring servicemen. There are different ways to honor the memory of both.

Hi My name is "Goyal Abhishek" I was married for 9years with Keshika and we had a kid together. Things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time... It got worse at a point that she filed for divorce... I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me. She moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce... I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when my friend introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who has helped him and his wife solve their infertility problem... I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers for me... Within 2 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, she moved back to the house and we continue to live happily. What a wonderful miracle Dr. Ken did for me and my family. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news... I strongly believe someone out there need's his help (supersolutionhome1@gmail.Com or supersolutionhom@yahoo.Com)so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it's truly worth it.
