Forever Phenominal

Wise people will always tell you make a difference in the world… leave footprints. The interesting journey is figuring out the best way to do it for you. This can be a number of things whether it’s finding a cure for cancer, developing a new law or even inventing something that is forever influential such as a car or even a book. I always thought it was interesting how one could form words on a page to make you laugh, cry or feel anticipation. That’s the beauty of writing and why it saddens me that Maya Angelou passed away today. Her words, poems and novels influenced a large number of people though she grew up in a era where the odds where against her. She gave people hope and touched many hearts by expressing her own troubling experiences. Her accomplishments are every writers dreams. Unfortunately this phenomenal woman is no longer here in the physical but her phenomenal footprints, her words and writing, are here to stay forever. Rest in peace.

Some Of Maya’s Accomplishments:

  • Numerous published writings including  I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings
  • Author of over five autobiographies
  • Civil Rights Activist
  • Actress in television mini-series Roots
  • Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama
  • Recites poem On the Pulse of the Morning at President Bill Clinton’s Inauguration
  • Three Grammys for spoken words albums
