|Marguerite Ann Johnson (Maya Angelou)|
April 4, 1928; died May 28, 2014
Oh, My God! Those were my first words this morning when I learned of the passing of the great Maya Angelou.
For my generation, in particular, she was one of our national treasures. When my daughter was 12, I bought her a copy of "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings," a literary right of passage.
We are blessed in knowing that our great legends never leave us, for their imprint lasts forever.
Rest in Paradise, Ms. Angelou. You have fought the good fight.
