Michael Jackson’s Name Once Again Adorns Elementary School

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson’s name is shining once again at a Hollywood elementary school.

Boards were placed over the Michael Jackson Auditorium sign at Gardner Street Elementary School when the late entertainer was charged with child molestation in 2003. It remained covered after his acquittal.

Since Jackson’s death last year, fans had clamored that the boards be removed and on Friday they got their wish.

School district Superintendant Ramon Cortines directed the cover to be removed “in recognition of Michael Jackson’s musical legacy and contribution to modern culture.”

The Gardner auditorium was dedicated to Jackson in 1989. He had once attended the school.

    Michael Jackson was never a child molestor. The illuminati set him up and eventually poisoned him to silence him.

    I would think MJ would be very proud to know that he’s been vindicated from all the lies and his name has been restored in a place where Children will always be, since he had such a great love & understanding of the magic in all children. Love & Truth is always stronger than lies and deceit brought on by greed, and yes Michael that’s spelled L.O.V.E. :)

    Negativity breeds negativity. MJ fans need to keep spreading the L.O.V.E. because love conquers hate. Even though those who write negative and hateful comments on boards like are entitled to their own opinions, they are only showing their own state of mind, and they will attract that same negativity and hate into their own lives. Pray for them, even they do not welcome your prayers.

    RIP MJ
