I first "discovered" Dr. Angelou as a Freshman in high school in "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings" and I was annoyed with her. LOL! Writers see the word in their own way! I have learned to admire and respect her. I saw her as our National Matriarch. My favorite quote of hers is: "When someone tells you who they are...Believe them." I am certain she had much more to say - her transition is an awful national loss...
