  1. Vincent Harding, Then Sam Greenlee, Now Maya Angelou. It reminds me of a poem I wrote a while ago…


    When the legends die,
    Who will be the role models?
    Who will lead the way?

    When the stars go by,
    Genies have left the bottles,
    What are we to say?

    Who will tell us how
    To be our best, truest selves?
    How will we be shown?

    We should rise up now,
    Pull our ideas off the shelves,
    Before we’re alone.

    ——-Sharon F. Warner
