Friends, I am struggling with the news of the loss of my hero, inspiration, and role model. Since I was young, Dr. Maya Angelou has played a huge role in my life, finding my voice, and creating my dreams. I pray her legacy lives on in our hearts and continues to touch young dreamers. I ask my friends today to take a moment for Dr. Angelou. I also ask that you spend some time thinking and thanking the hero in your life. For all they have inspired you to do – let them know.
If I may close with this, I will continue to hold Maya Angelou’s quote near to my heart.
“Life loves to be taken by the lapels and told, I’m with you kid. Let’s Go.”
