It’s been eight years since the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away and the world still misses him greatly. Many still chase down the unanswered questions that surround his passing, but most of his fans simply can’t believe that he’s gone. His legacy lives on in both his music and his three children, Paris, Prince, and Blanket, and nobody feels his loss more keenly than them.
Paris is now 19 years old and is striving to make a name for herself in the cut-throat celebrity world. She’s very active on social media and uses her online presence to promote mental health awareness and political activism. She’s a young lady who wants to use her voice to make this world a better place, following in her father’s footsteps in a way he would be proud of.
Paris often travels to countries in need of aid, bringing love and care to those who need it most. She understands that she has a lot of good fortune in her life and wants to use some of that to help others. I think Michael would be proud of that, don’t you? Here’s Paris in Malawi, doing work with the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation.
She’s also used a recent appearance at the VMA’s to speak out against the violent acts of racism in Charlottesville. She used her time as a presenter to make a motivational speech about tolerance that was met with massive applause from the attending audience.
Paris took to her Instagram account on what would have been her father’s 59th birthday to share a previously unseen photograph of a tender moment between her and her dad. The sweet picture shows Paris giving her father a kiss and shows the close bond the two of them shared. Here’s the adorable picture that Paris shared with the world.
Paris captioned her photograph with the words, “birthday wishes to the love of my life, the one person who showed me what passion truly was, the one that gave me solid morals to live by and how to dream.” Is anyone else feeling a little emotional right now? Because I think I’m gonna need a whole box of tissues over here.
This isn’t the first time that Paris has shared pictures of herself with her father, however, she’s been known to use slightly more unconventional methods to take the family photos she’s missed out on. She’s used photo editing software to create pictures of quality time she could have had with her dad.
I love that Paris still feels so close to her father after all these years. Losing a parent is difficult for anyone but do lose your father at such a young age and while in the public eye must have been a real trial for such a young girl. It’s heartwarming to see that she still views him as an inspiration and a positive influence in her life.
