maya angelou died 86

So sad!

It breaks our heart to report that Maya Angelou has passed away at the age of 86 years old.

The legendary and remarkable poet, novelist, civil rights activist, and woman was found by her caretaker this morning.

It is believed that she had recently been battling health problems as she canceled an appearance where she was going to be honored with the Beacon of Life Award at the 2014 MLB Beacon Award Luncheon on May 30th in Houston, Texas.

We're sure the event will find a way to honor her amazing life.

There are no other details about her death available at this time. But we know her inspiration will continue to live on for many, many years.

Our thoughts go out to her loved ones.

    All of us die, not all of us truly live life to its fullest and leave an impact on people we have never met. Live on, Maya!!!!!

    I still read her poetry when I cannot sleep. What an amazing life. Not so much heart breaking as inspiring and beautiful. She led a long life dedicated to others. Good for her.
