Broken and Beautiful- Goodbye Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou to followCelebrated poet, writer and civil rights activist crammed a few lifetimes into one. A fry cook, prostitute, night club dancer and performer, cast member of an opera, journalist, actor, director, the producer of plays, movies, and public television. Since the early 80’s she taught. I am surly missing a few. Her beginnings were as stable as a small craft caught in a sea storm. She did not speak for a period of 5 years due to trauma, and by 17 was single mother. She her lifes work is a testament to all, that we as humans can survive hardships and rise above them, make something good out of pain. Her words made our world a little more beautiful. She was an amazing woman and leaves behind a legacy for generations to come. She will be greatly missed.
