Dian Fossey
Dian Fossey loved gorillas so much, she dedicated her life to the study and preservation of them. In 1966 she went to live in the African jungle in order to get close to them, learn their behaviors and befriend them, while fighting off poachers who hunted them. She published articles to gain attention and support for gorilla conservation. In 1985, when she was 54 years old, Dian was found murdered in her jungle cabin. The mystery of her death was never fully resolved.
Rosalind Franklin
Rosalind Franklin was a British Jewish chemist who made a crucial contribution to the discovery of the double helix structure in DNA. Sadly, this fact is little known. Brilliant and headstrong, she did not get along with her proud male colleagues James Watson, Francis Crick, and Maurice Wilkins, who used her research in their DNA model without giving her credit until after they won the Nobel Prize, which was four years after her death in 1958. She died at age 37 of ovarian cancer, possibly caused by her exposure to radiation during her work.

I hope beauty chases you while you chase it, and that wonder and majesty leave your quest for glory very successful.  I hope you find many fun things to do, many wonderful sights to see, and many extraordinary people with whom to interact in positive ways.  May the unexpected always turn out to be good.  I hope this year is one of successful efforts to improve, new friendships made, old friendships renewed, and may you and those you love have a wonderful ride together around the sun in the year beginning with this HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
