A Rock, A River, A Tree!
As I think about how many things influence me in my life, I always think about how instrumental the work of poet and scholar Dr. Maya Angelou has helped shape my point of view. Her autobiography I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings should be required reading for every student and her poetry is some of the great works of the American canon. I was watching her Inaugural poem “On The Pulse of Morning” on Youtube the other day and I just really felt the need to share it with the world.
Truly personifying what it means to speak truth to power!
Thank you Dr. Angelou
