Maya Angelou had to bow out of an event this weekend. We told you in our the story Maya Angelou Sidelined Due To Undisclosed Illness Sunday afternoon that she would be unable to appear at The Civil Rights Game Ceremony.
She took to her Facebook page for a few words of gratitude and explanation:
An unexpected medical emergency caused me the greatest disappointment of having to cancel my visit to the Major League Baseball Civil Rights Game ceremony. I am so proud to be selected as its honoree. However, my doctors told me it would be unadvisable for me to travel at that time. My thanks to Robin Roberts for speaking up for me and thank you for all your prayers. I am each day better.
Yesterday she left these inspiring words:
And now we come to the day where we can honor the brave men and women who have risked their lives to honor our country and our principles. Our history is rife with citizens who care and who are courageous enough to say we care for those who went before us.
