As I searched You Tube for Maya Angelou’s speeches, interviews and performances, I found this video of her sharing the genesis of her poem THE MASK and also giving wise words on peace to her audience in BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel.
Below is Maya Angelou’s life lesson on PEACE…
“Bring peace in your heart
wherever you go- anywhere.
Just decide I’m taking peace with me.
I’m not waiting till I get there
to make it!
(You understand? It’s my prayer for you and I thank you for your love)”
