Please add this intention to your prayers. I am stunned and saddened by this news:
Yahoo News UK is reporting that at least a dozen Michael Jackson fans have committed suicide in the wake of the pop star's death.
According to Gary Taylor, president and owner of MJJcommunity.com, 12 distraught fans of the 'King of Pop' have taken their own lives, apparently unable to cope with the loss of their hero.
Taylor said the singer's death had left his fans on the forum "in a surreal place"...They can't accept it, they feel in some sort of different reality"
Taylor continued "It is a serious situation that these people are going through but Michael Jackson would never want this. He would want them to live."
The article also states that the Reverend Jesse Jackson, a friend of the singer, recorded a YouTube video asking Jackson fans not to "self destruct" over the loss of the singer.
