Dr. Maya Angelou
Poet and author shares some of her insights. Dr. Maya Angelou has been saying, "Now is the time for thinking people to think." Here, she shares one
of her thought provoking messages:
Justice begins with each of us. Like every American and like most people in the world, I'm speechless, she says. And that doesn't mean I don't have something to say.
We have to seek justice. We must do so. We have to, at the same time, be careful not to lust after revenge. If we do, many things happen. One, we are no better than the
adversaries, we may be even worse. We should always be at war with injustice. Always. In our families, in our selves, in our neighborhoods, in our cities, in our
states›we should always be on the other side from injustice. I believe however, that it all starts with me. And I believe that the change which must take place in
all parts of the world, like the Middle East and in Ireland and as we have seen in South Africa, all those changes begin with me. I think that we have to each of us
learn everything we possibly can. We must think...Love Is What Really Matters. What really matters now is love. Now I don't mean mush, I don't mean sentimentality.
I mean that condition in the human spirit so profound that it allows us to rise. Strength, love, courage, love, kindness, love. That is really what matters. There
has always been evil, and there will always be evil, but there has always been good, and there is good now.
