Our Tribute to Dr. Maya Angelou

“Stand up straight and realize WHO you are! That you tower over your circumstances and you are a child of God.
– Dr. Maya Angelou

Our Tribute to Dr. Maya

What a difference she made in her life by deciding to speak after 6 years of being silent. What a difference she made in our lives just by opening her mouth and allowing the words to flow from her heart and her soul.

R.I.P. Dr. Maya. WE will miss you greatly! You were a trailblazer, a visionary and a true phenomenal woman. God has called home one of His Angels saying, “Well done thy good and faithful servant.”  He knows you’ve labored much. You’re battle now is over! He’s welcoming you home. Telling you, it’s time to rest!

May her life and legacy live on in our hearts and in our actions. May we continue to operate in the realm in which she led her life by simply making a difference …..

Peace be unto you!
