June 13th , 2005 – Michael Jackson was acquitted on all 10 counts!
The Gardner School, at which he was enrolled as student shortly before his career started, honored Michael Jackson in 1989 by naming the auditorium after him. Therefore he showed up at the ceremony on October 11th, 1989 and thanked personally with a short speech.
While the case was heard the Gardner School has covered his name with a plywood box. Understandable, considering the situation at that time.
But after the acquittal the name wasn’t uncovered (until NOW!). This isn’t only an inappropriate (non-)action of the school, but even a wrong sign in public.
It’s a sign of callousness on the part of the school, a sign of disrespect and intolerance.
It is the duty of such institutions to build the children’s character and to impart knowledge. Therefore it is necessary to handle such issues very sensitively.
Now it’s our part to do something! To point out this problem to the Gardner School and hopefully to uncover Michael Jackson’s name, you easily can print out the logo of this campaign (this should demonstrate the international character of this mission.), glue it on a postcard and send it to the Gardner School. But don’t forget to sign up the online petition!
