So, today 28th May, 2017 is the 3rd anniversary of the death of one of the most iconic women to have ever graced this earth. Even though, she never knew me and I never met her, I felt like I knew her. I always felt like I could relate to her and whenever I watched her, it always felt like she was talking to me.
Maya Angelou wasn’t perfect and she never claimed to be. However, whenever she went through trials and tribulations in her life, she learnt from it and she always passed the knowledge on. I would have loved to sit at her feet and just allow all her wisdom permeate through my head, my heart, my being.
She inspired me.
She still does. I feel blessed to have been on this earth when she was here; to have shared the same planet with such a wonderful human being.
I remember her today. I remember her for the love, the wisdom and the energy that she passed. I remember her for the PHENOMENAL woman that she was and I thank her for reminding me that even when this world is against me, I will still rise.
Rest on Dr. Angelou.
