Another library and encyclopedia has just been burnt down. Maya Angelou, well-lauded poet, visionary, best-selling author, educator, historian, Pulitzer prize winner and my shero was found dead this morning at her home in Winston-Salem. She is known for her unwitting wisdom and inspiring speeches. She also wrote one of my favourite poems Still I Rise. Some famous quotes by Maya are: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
You have left us with so much to remember you by. RIP Maya.

Enjoy n thanks for de patronage. Happy new week ya”ll’. Hmmmmm. How many of us will be buying?
