Maya Angelou passed away quietly in her sleep yesterday morning. I found out via social media. It was amazing to see, hear and read about the impact that her life and words had on sooooo many people. What a beautiful legacy she left behind. We all have the potential to leave greatness in our wake if we so choose. I am thankful to Maya for the way she chose to overcome the adversities in her life, and how she shared them with the world. Her life, words and works stand as a testament to overcoming and creating beauty from ashes.
Maya, you will be missed, and your words will be forever treasured.
