July 31st 1992, Michael Jackson appeared on his hotel balcony Friday after police told him it would keep a young man from committing suicide by jumping from an apartment block opposite. Eric Herminie, 28, perched on the parapet six stories up on Friday afternoon and shouted, “I want to see Michael! I’m going to jump if I don’t!” Press Association, the British news agency, said. He then screamed, “Michael, Michael!” over and over, it said.
Police contacted Jackson, and he appeared on his Dorchester Hotel balcony for about two minutes, waving to Herminie and to fans gathered below, said a Scotland Yard spokesman. Herminie, who is unemployed, then climbed back inside the building, he said.
"I’m loved, I’m valued & I’m capable of achieving balance in my life. I can learn to eat well. I can exercise. I can express gratitude for the simple act of being able to breathe in & breathe out. I can move away from darkness & depression to light & hope. I can be happy with who I am, not what I should be, or what I might have been, or what someone tells me I must be. I am me, the true me; you are you, the true you — & that’s good. That’s beautiful. That’s enough." - Janet Jackson
