On Maya Angelou

News just in that iconic American author, poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou has passed away. She was 86. I can't help but think of what is likely her most famous qoute, because her words have resonated in me, and helped shape my own world view, almost from the moment I first heard them:
"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."
May her memory always be a blessing, and may we all carry her lessons forward.
