In an interview with Maya Angelou, Ann Curry asked, "What's the lesson above all others, that you wish to teach?"
Maya Angelou said, "That you have been loved. The truth is, to exist at all, you have been loved. Whether the ancestors came from Eastern Europe, trying to escape the pogroms and little and large murders or whether they came from Africa, unwillingly, lying spoon fashion in the filthy hatches of slave ships. They have paid for each one of us. If you can just ingest that little piece of truth, suddenly some part of you is liberated. I have been loved. That is one of the great lessons to me."
