So, loud and clear we hear statements that racism/discrimination on the grounds of colour and gender, have near been eradicated. But the subtle shadowed whispers that seep from darkened corners into the light, tell a completely different story... and those who know it, feel it! !
When one scans the comment from Dave O’leary, my point is made without further remark!
Still I Rise and Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou are a source of inspiration in times of need.
Angelou's poems have inspired millions. Her experiences in life has brought the pen in her hand, to the touch of the paper. Angelou's inspiration encourages women of ALL ages to never give up. No matter what you look like or what you've been through: you WILL be okay. On a person level, whenever I feel down or upset with whatever situation is currently overwhelming me, I sit in my chair and read her poems. Her constant reminder that you are a wonderful woman, and you will come out of this, is enough to get me out of that weak and distasteful state.
