Emmanuel's Dream by Laurie Ann Thompson. Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, Emmanuel was dismissed by most people--but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, he hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age 13 to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing 400 miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message that disability is not inability. (05-06-2015)

Statue of the Celtic Queen Boudica, Westminster Bridge, London. Boudica, also known as Boadicea or Buddug in Welsh (d. AD 60 or 61) was queen of the British Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire after the Romans broke a treaty and attacked Boadicca's people. She burned Londinium (London) to the ground and slaughtered a Roman army in 60 AD. An inspirational female warrior with tremendous bravery against an overwhleming force who believed in freedom.
Queen Boudica (d. 60/61 AD) was queen of the British Iceni tribe who led a revolt against occupying forces of the Roman Empire. Upon her husband's death, the Empire annexed her state, publicly flogged her, and raped her daughters. She razed Londinium (modern day London), Verulamium (St Albans) and Camulodunum (Colchester), causing Nero to briefly consider withdrawing Roman control from Britain. Boudica was eventually defeated by Suetonius and either killed herself or died of illness.

Boudicca was the queen of the people of Iceni (which is now Norfolk and Suffolk, England) & joined by her husband the king, Prasutagus. The Iceni were a Celtic tribe who were isolated in their part of the world. The sea lay to the north and east and the remainder of their land was covered in a dense forest, making any type of invasion very difficult but not impossible.

Pioneering astronomer Vera Rubin graduated from Vassar in 1948 as the only astronomy major in her class. She received a master’s from Cornell in 1950 and a Ph.D. from Georgetown in 1954. She went on to discover dark matter — one of the most important milestones in the history of understanding space — by proving beyond doubt that galaxies spin faster than Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation dictates they should.
