Everyday since Maya Angelou passed I have cried. No, all of the tears are not sad, some are great gratefulness. Anyone who has seen her speak or read her words will know what I mean. I still remember seeing her on Oprah many, many years ago. What a force!
As a woman who has struggled with confidence and also with feminist ideals (and the lack of both in my life and around me) no one has been a better role model than her. I move forward with her voice in my heart.
