Was reading something about Maya Angelou (the famous feminist poet) and found this ....

Maya's older brother, Bailey, provides an unconditional love that creates in Maya a more balanced, healthy spirituality. Bailey is Maya's companion and supporter.

Maya writes: “Of all the needs…a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness is the unshaking need for an unshakable God. My pretty Black brother was my Kingdom Come.”
(from- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969) a powerful, inspirational childhood autobiography by her).

After this, do I need to say anything!

(PS: I'm in her home state now and appreciate it all in a better way).
