WATCH: Michelle Obama Speaks At Maya Angelou's Memorial Service

Beautiful. Michelle Obama certainly gave Maya Angelou her flowers, as the old folks say. The first lady, along with others such as former president Bill Clinton and Oprah, paid tribute to the author and poet at a memorial service held today.

“She told us that our worth has nothing to do with what the world might say,” the first lady said of the poet and civil rights activist. “Instead she said, 'each of us comes from the creator trailing wisps of glory.' She reminded us that we must each find our own voice, decide our own value and then announce it to the world with all the pride and joy that is our birthright as members of the human race.
