Michael Jackson was a gifted entertainer, and his loss impacts us all. The best response -- indeed the only response -- during this dark moment is to look back and consider what he's left us. It's a legacy that spans multiple mediums and all walks of life. From the millions of faceless record buyers to the high-profile Cult of Celebrity, the outpouring of grief at the loss of such an influential force in entertainment is palpable.
People from all walks are more than willing to share their fondest remembrances of Jackson. Seth Green had this to say in a statement to MTV News: "It's shocking and so sad. But for the first time in a long time, people are talking about all of the amazing things he was rather than all of the unfortunate attention he'd acquired."
