These legends were recognized today 2/15/11 with the Medal of Freedom, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a civilian in America. They both play significant parts in American history and both come from different walks of life. I’m impressed by them both. I’m a St. Louisan, born and raised, so of course I’m a Cardinal’s fan. I’m glad Stan is around and of sound mind and body in order to be able to enjoy his honor. Maya Angelou also has ties to St. Louis, born here in 1928 She’s a beautiful woman inside and out. I hope that many of you who have the opportunity will take time to research information on these two icons.
