Maya Angelou -- In Memoriam

The US and the world lost a jewel. Maya Angelou died a few days ago.. She was an amazing human being, capable of singing her verses through voice and writing. If you have not, read some of her beautiful poems. Delightful!

I just finished reading all her autobiographies and ended wondering if she ever forgave God for having created several races, especially whites. But it was easy to understand how she seemed to carry the weight of centuries of injustice. Strangely enough, I have not found, yet, much of these feelings in her poetry, but I may be wrong as poetry is quite mysterious to me... Still, she had quite a life, and her stammina facing challenges remains an example for living...
