THE JUICE WITH JEM 

  When on set during the film of TV Series “Roots”, actor Levar Burton recalled of the time MAYA ANGELOU once scolded him for KILLING A BUG!   In his defense, he states “I thought it was my responsibility to kill this bug to protect the women in that moment” “Some giant bug came crawling into the hut… I was 19-years-old, and didn’t know a whole lot”. “And Maya lit into me something fierce. And I have NEVER forgotten that look.”   Maya Angelou, in response “Just because you are larger than a thing gives you no right to think you have control over its life or death. Because you are larger and more powerful means you have a responsibility to protect all life”.   I lesson well-learned stated Levar, from Maya Angelou!   Source: 106.9MOREFM/Image: tvweek.com @Jan893
