I was asked the other day by my professor, if I had the chance to invite three people to dinner, who would they be? I didn't answer him. I would have to mull-over that question. I woke up thinking about it today. It's a tough decision but one person came to mind that I knew I would enjoy the company of, Maya Angelou. I remember in fifth grade she came to visit my school, talked about her life, and told us a story. I remember sitting in awe of her, my eyes with filled with tears, and thinking, how is she so strong after everything that she has been through. Inspirational, is what she is. And if she joined me and some others for dinner, I would have her tell us a story or read some poetry afterward while we enjoyed a cup of tea together.
Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou (one of my favorites)
