Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six stepsShe passed away last Wednesday and as I was reading her biography, it was noted that she came from a small town called Stamps, Arkansas. I recently found out that my grandmother Elizabeth was from that little town also. So two degrees of separation from Maya Angelou via my grandmother; and now they can meet each other in Heaven. ( I do believe in Heaven, and rainbows and sunbeams too)
What a great person she was and she lived a full life, even to the end at 86.
Dr Angelou talks about "Being a rainbow for others"
