RIP Maya Angelou

maya-angelou-631.jpg__800x600_q85_cropone of my favorite quotes from dr. maya angelou is:

“the first time someone shows you who they are,
believe them.”

when i first heard it,
i was completely blown away.
it has stuck with me for years.
having several “a-ha” moments about people i needed to get rid of.
well maya angelou passed away today.
she was 86.
i was immediately saddened when i heard the news at work.
she was an inspiration to all and her light will surely be missed.
may she RIP.
her work on this earth will never be forgotten.
here is her final tweet:
