To Margaret Burroughs Family & Friends; May the God of all Comfort be with you during this sorrowful time. I met with Mrs. Burroughs twice in her office. She was humble, kind, down to earth, gracious, and encouraging. She was also a great teacher. She gave me a book entitled "Pictures of a Lonely Poet" written by William Jones, (a young man on death row claiming his innocence). She was very concerned about him and other black people in prison; and one of the ways she was helping them was by making it possible for their voices to be heard via publishing. She told me of his story, and read to me some of his poems that touched her. I walked away moved by her empathy and compassion. Here was this beautiful, famous, mature woman, successful enough to rest on her laurels; yet here she was still working untiringly trying to help those less fortunate. I was very impressed with her. She worked to the end, because with Dr. Margaret Burroughs, IT WAS ALWAYS ALL ABOUT OTHERS!
