“If a human being dreams a great dream, dares to love somebody; if a human being dares to be Martin King, or Mahatma Gandhi, or Mother Theresa, or Malcolm X; if a human being dares to be bigger than the condition into which she or he was born—it means so can you. And so you can try to stretch, stretch, stretch yourself so you can internalize, ‘Homo sum, humani nil a me alienum puto. I am a human being, nothing human can be alien to me.’ That’s one thing I’m learning.” ~ Maya Angelou

What does it really mean to be human? What does it really mean to be alive?

In this short yet powerful video, Maya Angelou talks about what it means to be human, and the beauty and grace we all possess.

Enjoy 🙂

What It Means to Be Human

Beautiful Maya, your words are melody to my ears. I love you for all that you shared with all of us while you were alive and I love you for all that you have left behind for all of us to learn and greatly benefit from. You were, are and will always be a light onto this world. Thank you for everything 🙂

RIP, you beautiful and loving Soul!

With all my love,
