“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
The Elegant Maya Angelou
I first read I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings then Heart of a Woman when I was in my 20’s. I was searching for myself out there in the world, and Maya taught me that I needed to go inward to find what I was looking for. Each day I wake up and breathe deeply and remember who I Am. There is one more bright, shining star in the sky tonight. Look upward, and know, it is you who also shines. Thank you, Ms. Angelou, for your eternal gifts.
