Listen to yourself,
and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.

Maya Angelou, the most Phenomenal Woman of all, passed away in her sleep today.  She inspired us all with her grace, brilliance, and wisdom.  On Easter Sunday in 1998, I asked Oprah to share Ms. Angelou’s wisdom with the world.  Oprah created Change Your Life TV which has, of course, morphed into OWN with Super Soul Sundays and Masters Class.  Click here to watch the video of Dr. Angelou reading “Phenomenal Woman.”

Gayle King gave a lovely tribute to Dr. Angelou on CBS This Morning which is available on-line narrated by Scott Pelley.  VAWnet posted:
