Maya Angelou

God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us- in the dreariest and most dreaded moments- can see a possibility of hope.

“You have no idea the power you have,” she said. “Well, you do have some idea because of how many thousands of you have come to make connections and see old friends and make new friends and encourage each other to continue.”

“I am here to tell you to continue,” she added. “Continue with sass — some idea of flare. Continue with some passion and compassion — some humor and some style. I came here to tell you how grateful I am to you, and let you know that you are rainbows in the clouds.”

Angelou shared times in her life in which teachers of all kinds — from her uncle Willy who taught her multiplication to her grandmother who encouraged Angelou during a time when others had given up on her — helped her become who she is today.

Rainbows in my clouds- Maya Angelou
