#RIPMayaAngelou 🙏

No doubt about it, She left this world extremely satisfied with herself. She has been & will continue to be one of the most influential people to ever grace this planet. She lives on through her work & accomplishments. #ripmayaangelou #ripmargueriteannJohnson

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou What made her so great was not just what she said, but how it made us feel and how it impacted our lives. #RIPMayaAngelou

Rest In Peace, Maya Angelou.

I've been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister, and friend since my 20’s. She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. ‘When you learn, teach. When you get, give’ is one of my best lessons from her. She won three Grammys, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration. But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she lived her life. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace. I loved her and I know she loved me. I will profoundly miss her. She will always be the rainbow in my clouds.

#MayaAngelou's perfect last tweet. #rip #wisdom #carpediem #inspiring
