On the Passing of Dr Maya Angelou: A Warrior is Coming!! Prepare Her Place!!!

If you are not a Trek-ie and don’t know Klingon traditions, this will sound really weird.

But with Maya Angelou death, I feel I should roar at the heavens.

Let them know that a warrior is coming.

So that the other warriors can prepare her place.

As with Nelson Mandela, I feel such a sense of respect and joy in a life lived with such courage and grace and humor.

beaten and bloodied

never bowed, never broken.

So thrilled to have seen that life, heard those words, received that smile.

So, because I am a Trek-ie and I do know Klingon traditions.

I turn my face to the heavens and scream until my chest hurts

A warrior is coming!!!

Prepare her place!!
