When I learned of Dr. Angelou’s death, I mourned that day in sadness. Today marks five years she has been gone from our world. I wrote this when I learned of her passing.
I’ve only wanted to meet two celebrities since I was a little girl…Patti LaBelle and Dr. Maya Angelou….she was the inspiration along with Langston Hughes for my love of writing poetry….a legend in the arts of poetry, writing, education, wisdom, humanity and love has slipped away…May you rest in eternal peace Dr. Maya Angelou!!
