Who can forget Maya Angelou’s wonderful voice at the presidential inauguration when she said…“Here on the pulse of this new day

You may have the grace to look up and out

And into your sister’s eyes,

And into your brother’s face,

Your country,

And say simply

Very simply

With hope —

Good morning.”

She spoke with such passion, and humour, and sense of fun.  She also spoke with anger at injustice, but above all her lyric was one of love, love for all people.

Thanks be to the Creator for her life and her love.
