I first had an opportunity to hear Dr #MayaAngelou speak at my Alma Mater, University of Cincinnati, oh so many years ago. To date, I cannot forget her words, how she said them, her style, her confidence, her humor, the depth of her character. She inspired me, like countless others & I carried the lessons throughout my life, as I got better & better acquainted with her. Here is a poem I had written, taking off from her poem “I am a phenomenal woman” – http://bit.ly/WNL1Fs RIP Dr. Angelou – you will never cease to be an inspiration! (poem below was written in response to domestic abuse – based on Maya Angelou’s poem and her inspiration. This poem is dedicated to the brave women who overcame and prevailed and whose stories I heard when I served on the board of a support network.)
