    How Maya Angelou made me feel

    A quote online today from Maya: "I've learned people will forget what you say, and people will forget what you did, but they will not forget how you made them feel". As our young family sat at her feet among a small gathering at the Martin Luther King Community center in Spokane in the late 70s, Ms. Angelo made me feel like I was the only person in the room so warm and intimate was her presence – I'm sure everyone felt the same way.
