Oh my goodness. It’s difficult to know what to say in regards to this tragic news. Cicely Tyson may have been 96-years-old, but she was someone I never pictured leaving us. A civil rights activist and multi-award winning, pioneering icon, she just released her memoir “Just As I Am,” on Tuesday. To be honest, I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact that she’s gone.


I think when you begin to think of yourself as having achieved something, then there’s nothing left for you to work towards. I want to believe there is a mountain so high that I will spend my entire life striving to reach the top of it.


She made her mark on this world and there will never be another one like her. Rest in Power.
