I am just so glad that Michaels children are accepting this award for there Dad.
I know that Michael shielded his kids from the craziness of the media, but I do believe that Michael would be as proud as punch to see the strength and courage that they have shown the world since he has passed. He kept his children out of the limelight to try and save them from the same torture that he had to deal with on a daily basis...At the hands of the media.
Perhaps, in light of Michaels passing, people have realized that these children are human. That Michael may have been an icon and a legend to us and fair game and a target for the media, But his children are not.
Let them accept this award for there Dad, which I think will take all the courage in the world...... (Remember, half of the world is trying to tell them "they are not Michaels children".)
Please Let Michaels children accept this honor and then let us let them live there lives, in peace.

God Bless you Prince, Paris and Blanket. We know you miss your Daddy...........We miss him too. Out thoughts and prayers are with you xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

They are just kids. Hasn't the family learned anything from Michael's fate? I wonder if the children shouldn't be kept as far away from spotlights and fame as possible.

These children can't get a break. It doesn't matter where they came from, very definitly matters where they are now. They have no protection. As much as I loved Mike's music, he was a twisted person who grew up in a very twisted enviornment. He by not leaving a will while they were in his care prove's that he didn't know or love them in a proper and true way. He virtually has left them to the wolves that are his family. No disrespect for wolve's here meant. Wolves usually take care and protect their young. The Jackson's don't know how. Sad.

You are NOT A CHILD ADVOCATE BUT A RACIST, UNCOUTH, HATEFUL BIGOT WISHING DEATH ON ANOTHER HUMAN BEING.

Especially to you and the rest of the crazy fools that come and post such despicable, nonsense untruth. Michael Jackson was found NOT GUILTY/AQUITTED of all charges.

The FBI release their files last month and did not find ANY evidence of child molestation. Hell, they further VINDICATE, Michael Jackson.

It's people like you in this hateful, negative and evil twisted world that continue to breed and promote such ahorrence of hate.

Apparently, you do not KNOW or have a personal and spiritural relationship with GOD, the Almighty, which is sad. GOD created us ALL in his likeness right down to the skin color.

The Devil/Satan is who you are praying to, which we all know is the BIGGEST, SELFISH, ODIUM LIAR with many followers such as yourself.

I'm going to pray for you and the rest of the haters in this devil world to stand up and make that change to make this world a better place for you and me.

Make That Change!!

I think that if the children can handle it, let them speak. It has been hard for them but they really loved their father and they were proud of him. They want the world to know this. God bless those kids and protect them. There are many people that loved MJ and there are many people that hated him (some of the comments are here prove that). If you hated MJ, why come on here and spit your hatred? For the dumb azz that said that the whole family should die in a car crash, karma is a bitch. I hope your whole family is not killed in a crash. I still can't believe that he is gone.....RIP Michael

child advocate : What do you know ? Everything that you're saying is based on a opinion you've forged by hearing merely hearsay by medias and mean-sprited people ? What give you the right to judge people and wish their death ? You're no God.Go into questionning about yourself and what you are and what you can give to make this rotten world better then you can lecture people and insult them.You're calling yourself "child advocate" ? How arrogant of you,you're an ignorant and you wanna play advocate ? I'm scared for the children indeed,if people like you come and pretend to be their advocate even tough all you want is to spit on someone's back and be vulgar.Don't take any cause because you have no one else than to be insulting and disrespectful to someone wich you didn't even know personnaly.Shame on you.And don't you dare say that I'm the same : Just seeing the way you talk and I know enough to post here.

I don't think this is a good idea..........I think it would be better to keep the children out of spotlights. Michael didn't hide them for nothing, he didn't make this decision and when the family would act in his spirit they wouldn't let them do this.
The kids don't have to 'perform" to make Michael proud of them, he is proud anyway.
They are still very young kids and very easy to influence, so how much of this is their decision?

I'm not convinced Michael would approve of this.
