I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Would you believe me if I told you that most of the world would notice the passing of an African American woman from Missouri and Arkansas who…

…was raised in a very unhappy and turbulent home

…was shipped off to live with her grandmother when she was three

…was sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend

…was mute for five years

…was a teenage unwed mother?

Maya Angelou is a woman who reminds us of many things, including:

  1. Life can be bad, but that won’t stop us unless we let it.
  2. Books can help us find our way.
  3. Whatever or whoever, you have value.
  4. The “song” we have been given is a song that can make a difference for others.
