Dear Dr. Maya Angelou, I am so very very honored to create this spotlight for you on our Blupela Social Good Network. Your life and legacy Dr. Angelou lives on through your teachings and works you have left us. As I look back on my life and see how fortunate I am to have known such honorable, wise, lofty and inspiring souls as yourself and my dear mentor Dr. Bishop Reginald Kelly, I humbly and deeply realize that our Father in Heaven always has and always will have His Holy Hand on this precious Earth and guide its destiny thru His will, deep deep within His own mysteries.

Our Creator places people together in the right places and times to make things happen such that His will be done. We are only His chariots to do such as all leaders as yourself and Dr. Bishop Reginald Kelly, of blessed memory, fought so very hard on a daily level to seek out and carry out what needs to be done in being of service to a greater community and world. Dr. Angelou you. along with Bishop Kelly OBM, have inspired so many and given each person who has come to know both of you through your works, the strength and courage to fight and persevere to carry on in life each in their own path and way.

I am uplifted to fully begin more to understand, appreciate and be inspired by the wisdom our Creator bestowed upon you in life to know and understand things on a much deeper level.

I conclude by asking myself and sharing with our online audience the statement you made to me right here in Pittsburgh in the early 1990s after I met you following your appearance at Carnegie Music Hall. How was it and how did you know to say to me what you said to me then? I was only 19 years old at the time and still by no means achieved in personal self development, but nonetheless you looked right in my eyes then and said, “My dear child, G-d has such great things in store for you and He in turn expects great things of you”. Thank you Auntie so very very much. Those words at that moment carried me for many years so very far and now I am pleased to bring you One World Blue. We love you and Bishop Kelly very very much. Heavens Blessings upon you and may your special souls shine on forever.

My very very best. Joel Pirchesky Founder and CEO of One World Blue, LLC
