Thank You, Maya Angelou May 28 2014

Author, poet, actor, singer, songwriter, dancer, playwright, historian, director, civil rights activist and teacher. Recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the National Medal of Arts. Three time Grammy winner and Tony nominee. Your impact on this world has been immense; you will be missed.

What you endured as a 7 year-old is beyond comprehension, and I can only shudder to think of my own 7 year-old in your shoes. But from the ashes rose this magnificent being, one that this world had not seen before. 

You are a legend. Thank you for making us feel better.

Thank you, Maya Angelou.
