Human Family

We lost a great poet this week.  Maya Angelou, whose brilliance in writing, activism, and just plain straight-out living left us gasping in admiration, has been described as a "global renaissance woman."

And how.

Worthwhile to take the time to trace that extraordinary life through Stamps, Arkansas, to Egypt, to Ghana, and beyond.

And even more worthwhile to listen to the poet's voice, her testimony to what she learned about our humanity through her world travels and her extraordinary gift for living.

You can read the poem, "Human Family," but I suggest you listen instead.

Peace be to her valiant spirit.
