What A Difference A Month Makes…

Dear God. What happened to the confident, likeable, sassy woman from a month ago? Shit, I am cringing so bad for her right now.

The most cringe-worthy bit, is when Katie Couric asks her to clarify her foreign policy experience:

Did she really say the following, in response to Couric’s question about her experience in foreign policy?

“Our next door neighbours are foreign countries, they’re in the state that I’m an executive of”

I mean, really?

Dear. Fucking. God. I take back all the positive things I ever said about her. I must have been smoking some strong shit at the time.

My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.

I always had a huge girl crush on Ms Angelou, and that was before I listened to her speak.

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

Maya Angelou

She’s one of those women, who’s books you just have to read, if for no other reason, than to recognise the difference between good writers, and those who are truly blessed with the ability to change people with their words.
