RIP Dr. Maya Angelou 1928 – 2014

Beloved poet and Renaissance woman Dr. Maya Angelou passed away Wednesday afternoon at the age of 86.

We may not have agreed with everything she wrote, and our politics were often at odds (and passionately so)…  still we can appreciate the talent and beauty that flowed from Dr. Angelou and her writing.

She was a warrior against racism and hatred who accomplished so many wonderful things during her life – she should be an inspiration to us all.

Dr. Angelou’s work touched the lives of millions and her voice will be missed.
