The Spirit Never Truly Dies

An African proverb reads-“no one is ever truly dead until there is no one left among the living to remember him.” Thank you all for comforting each other and sharing in the memory of Maya Angelou’s transition today. My pop, Magdalen, and Layla nourished my body with delicious food and talks over dinner. Sonya honored her in a moment of silence at dance rehearsal and we dance and drummed in her memory. The love. That is the legacy I wish to leave. I love and love so hard. Rest in Power Mama Angelou. ❤ Gracie
