Truly an inspirational human being!

...I too dream in color and in rhyme
So I guess I'm one of a kind in a full house
Cause whenever I open my heart, my soul or my mouth
A touch of God rains out...

From Reddit:

I won't forget the day she came to my Elementary school, I was in 5th grade in New Jersey. She did a Q & A for our senior class. She was so kind and humble. Her words were soft, yet strong. I asked her if we all could make the world a better place. She looked at me and my friends. We were all of a different race and said "You're doing just fine already, and I hope others can see the example you've set." I'll remember that forever, and will continue to do as fine as she said. RIP Maya, I hope the world will be just fine someday.

 

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Will be truly missed by many - including those that never met her in person.
