An Angel Goes Home

Old age is such a blessing. But what good is it exactly? Methuselah, they say had lived for thousand years. But what for? Many people around the world shares a sense of loss about the recent passing of Maya Angelou. She had been a significant influence for good in world and shall always remain a pride of the African communities worldwide. Weeks before Dr. Maya Angelou's passing, Dr Ezi Mecha was planning to record a video message about her work relationship with Chinua Achebe. Something she had agreed to do. She had a strong sense of belief in her roots as a guide to the present and the future, and what it means to live a purposeful life.

Pharrell Williams, a brilliant and successful African American music entertainer said in his twitter feed that he is saddened by the news of Maya Angelou's passing: A brilliant woman who contributed so much to the world.” Looking at Dr. Maya's what about her life and her contribution to Africa can we emulate?
