Ms Maya by chocolatechapstick @MsOreoLesbian
As a kid in the girl scouts, we were taken to many events. One that always stood out to me was when we got to meet Maya Angelou, she read and spoke to us. She allowed us to shake her hand or hug her, and take a picture (which I’m still looking for).

For a while I believed them. I thought I was chasing a dream. A wish that would stay where it belonged, in dreamland. But sitting here today, I know that you can make whatever you want happen. ....................(READ MORE)
