RIP Maya Angelou

With more achievements than I could write or find , I remember Maya Angelou for the following ...
She was raped at 7 or 8, by her mom's boyfriend.
She was a stripper, and sold herself for sex when she was young.
And was in charge of a prostitution  house.
Yet she was strong and amazing.
Everything she did and witnessed made her to be who she was.
Just like all of us.
We don't have to cringe or regret what happened in life.
We have to embrace it, good or bad.
It is part of our make up.

She also wrote "Why the caged bird sings".

When she spoke, I listened.
