We watch in awe and listen to their courageous words and actions.
Then, there are the “Silent heroes”. Those men and women, who are living their lives, going to work and raising their children. Many of those people, do what they have to do to make their way in the world.
Most of them, we will never know their names, and yet their contributions are as significant .
Azja Pryor is one of those “Silent Heroes:, a dedicated mother , who made a decision to put it all on the line to speak the truth, for a friend.
That friend, was Michael Jackson.
Last year, Azja wrote an open letter to Arvizo family, the family that accused Michael Jackson of child molestation during the 2005 trial.
Azja appealed to the better nature of the Arvizo family. She urged them to finally tell the truth and clear his name.
Azja did not have to do this , she could, have continued to live her life. But , what Azja did was all about integrity.
It is a true measure of character, to put yourself out there for someone, who needs your help. Azja spoke Truth to Power.
The power of a horrendous lie, that threatens the legacy of Michael Jackson.
And this, was not the first time for Azja. During the 2005 trial, Azja took the stand and testified on Michael’s behalf. She spoke her truth about the Arvizo family and the true nature of their connection to Michael. She testified with conviction and honesty. Many believe, myself included , that Azja’s testimony helped in Michael’s acquittal.
What Azja did on the stand that day and her dedication to Michael and the truth, was an act of true courage. And this was at a time, when courage was on short supply, from many of Michael’s celebrity friends , who had all but abandoned him, when he needed their support the most.
Azja Pryor was there for MJ! In the year since, Michael’s passing, it sometimes, is hard to tell the good guys from the villains.
When Michael’s “so-called” friends . seem more intent on using his passing for their own career advancement.
Azja Pryor is a shining example of integrity, finding the grace to do what, may not be popular, but doing what is right.
For many of Michael Jackson Fan’s... Azja Pryor is a hero! and we thank God for her!
