Michael Jackson Saved My Grandma

Category: Humanitarian,MJ Quotes,Quotes About MJSeven @ 12:01 am

I have read a few accounts like the one below about our golden-hearted man, Michael Jackson, who was always so kind to everyone – in public or private. Michael didn’t bring attention to so many of his kind and generous deeds and gestures throughout his life because he didn’t do it for the attention. He didn’t do it for himself or for the adulation. He did it because he was LOVE embodied – because he really DID “love you MORE” as he often replied when people said “I Love You Michael!

Part of this was his religious and spiritual belief system, which he very much endeavored to live by, and it was also just who he was.

Regardless of the manner in which the media has defined him,  THIS IS THE REAL MICHAEL JACKSON.  You’ll notice he’s nothing like the “freak” the media always portrayed him to be. He was just a normal, sweet, caring man who tried to help everybody, including Grandma Concetta. (We could do without the “Jacko” moniker in the article though. Michael hated being called that!)

In December 1997, my maternal grandparents, Joseph and Concetta Delisi, were on an American Airlines flight from JFK to LAX. Sitting coach, they were visiting my family for christmas.

A couple of hours into the flight, my grandma (literally) falls ill. What started as a stomach ache, ended with granny fainting and tumbling into the aisle.

When she awakes, hovering above (next to my grandpa) and holding out his hand, Michael Jackson.

Are you o.k.?” MJ asked, in his delicate voice.

He helps grandma up, and invites my grandparents to join him in first class. they accept.

While a photograph was never taken, he left our family with an amazing memory, one that showed us Michael Jackson’s heart, soul, and genuine kindness.

Oh, and this first class menu he signed on the plane . . .
