|My Visit To Neverland Valley Ranch by Faith|
by Faith (USA)
Hello my name is faith and my visit to Neverland Valley Ranch was an unexpected and amazing surprise.
It was the day Michael was in court for his verdict. I was ten years old. My mother, me and my younger sister headed out to Santa Barbra after hearing that he was inviting fans to come celebrate at his house so we got in our car and drove.
We arrived about two and a half hours early hoping to catch a glimpse of Michael. A group of three were also there, two women and a little boy. My mother and the women approached the first gate and told the security guard that we were supporters of Michael and asked if we could go in. I froze at the site of an opening gate. I was ecstatic my only wish was to meet the man I looked up to since the age of two.
Now i was entering the gates of the most peaceful place I've ever been to. We drove for quite a while me and my sister could see the magnificent gold gates and we stared jumping up and down. As we walked in my mind was clear as the sky. All I could feel was warmth and happiness. All of my fear and problems just drifted away. The most amazing thing was not only were we in Neverland we were the only ones there and had the whole place to our self's for two whole hours. This place was beyond disneyland it was peaceful and clam me and my mom and sister took a twenty minute walk and just took in all the statues the water fountains and beautiful plants. Its hard to explain the feeling you got there it was not weird not at all unusual but just too perfect for words.
Me and my sister ran to the two story arcade and immediately started eating all the candy we could get our hands on. We played numerous games before heading out to the trampoline. While I was jumping I turned around and was startled by a llama. What a wonderful place I thought to myself. There was food, carnival rides, a theater, a zoo and best of all it was all real. I wasn't dreaming this nor imagining it. I was so excited to watch a movie I ate so much candy and ice cream.
Soon enough Michael fans and family filled the ranch and we were no longer alone, but Ill tell you those two hours we the best hours of my life to date.
After meeting Tido and Marlin I lost my mom and sister. Much to my surprise I wasn't scared not even a bit! I just couldn't believe that this was actually happening to me!
Soon I caught up with my mom and sister. There were camera men around and they were filming a video for Michael. I was much too shy to say anything though and buried my face into my moms side. I still kick myself for that. Haha anyways the day went by so fast I felt sad that I would soon have to leave.
On my departure I met Jermaine he's was a very nice person. It was getting around six o'clock and we had been there since about nine-ten. So it wasn't at all a short day.
Leaving was one of the saddest times in my life but I will never ever ever forget that day. I have my memories and I look to them when ever I need a cheer up. Forever and always I will love Michael and support him and forever and always I will remeber that day that was too perfect and wonderful for words.
