If you look at Google today, you'll notice a new logo! It's Amelia Earhart's 115th birthday! What an inspiring woman! She had guts and she had grace and she died a hero to many. I may have done a school report on her while in elementary school.

We also have some saddening news as well today. Astronaut Sally Ride, the first American woman to go into space, died yesterday at the young age of 61 after battling pancreatic cancer for almost 2 years. I know I definitely did a school project on her; I remember checking out her biography from the school library to work on that project.

These women were trailblazers in their respective fields, and I applaud their life, their accomplishments, and most of all, their spirits!
