    How Maya Angelou Made Me FEEL


    “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.”


    This is a favorite quote of  many people, including me. It taught me that Ms. Angelou was an earthy woman who knew the -core- of individual emotions.


    I'll never forget the way Dr. Angelou made me FEEL. At 86, she still lived life to the full, overcame adversities and motivated ME to do the same.
