      Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957) - Wrote the Little House on the Prairie series which aren't just for kids. The TV series of the same name was utter rubbish and bears little resemblance to the books.

    Wow! Look at this! In 1881, Laura Ingalls had her portrait taken with sisters Carrie and Mary -- perhaps just before Mary went away to the School for the Blind. It was the first photograph they sat for. Ma and Pa saw it as a treasure and a remembrance, the three girls together.

    Irena Sendler got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumber. She courageously smuggled babies in her tool box and carried larger children in her sack. She also trained her dog to bark when the Nazi soldiers were near, which muffled the sounds of the crying children. She helped save more than 2,500 children & was eventually caught & tortured. Sendler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize along with Al Gore, who won for his presentation on global warming...but she is a HERO!
