We can't even imagine.

Our hearts are breaking over the loss of Maya Angelou, but it is probably nowhere near the pain Oprah is feeling after losing her dear friend and mentor.

And her words are revealing that pain as she has released an emotional and beautiful statement on the loss:

"I've been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister, and friend since my 20’s. She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. ‘When you learn, teach. When you get, give’ is one of my best lessons from her.

She won three Grammys, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration. But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she lived her life. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace. I loved her and I know she loved me. I will profoundly miss her. She will always be the rainbow in my clouds.

Ugh! Absolutely heart-breaking. Rest in peace, Maya.

Our thoughts are with her friends and family.

    Oprah is a racist, and so was Maya
    I respected, and admired Maya up until she went on a rant about people who did not support President Obama were racist
    Obama is a terrible president and I'm not a racist
    Carter was a terrible president and he was white
    The race card has been pulled on us too many times

    I would love to see a poll that decides how many Americans actually know who Maya Angelou is. Most Americans don't know who their Vice President is or where Montana is.
