Today I am sad to say that the wonderful and incredible Maya Angelou passed away. Her writing inspired the world. I wish I could tell you about all that she did but that would take up way too much space. If you would like to learn more about this magnificent human being, click here.
Angelou had a difficult life. At a young age she was raped by her mother’s boyfriend, she had a son as a teen, she worked miscellaneous jobs to get by, including prostitute and fry cook, and used those struggles to write seven autobiographies. She used her experiences to create art. Her life is an example of what the human spirit is capable of.
Today we say goodbye to a woman that has truly made the world a better place by being in it.
Rest in peace, Maya Angelou.
