One person can make a difference

Yesterday I joined with many, many others around the world to mourn the loss of Maya Angelou, writer, poet, dancer etc. My sadness at the loss of someone so amazing was echoed by others far more eloquently and with far more Twitter followers.

I know why the caged bird sings is a story of hope and it is always wonderful to show my classes footage of Maya Angelou reading her poem at President's Clinton's inauguration to show that we are not defined by what happens to us but how we define ourselves.

""My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style."
