Though its not a very exciting doodle I felt it must be commented on...because this woman deserves to be remembered.

Marie Skłodowska Curie (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934) was a Polish–French scientist who among her achievements coined the word, radioactivity.

"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful." ― Marie Curie

At a public meeting to name the new High School, there were suggestions to name it after "Ronald Reagan," and other political heros and war heros, but my oldest who would be attending the school raised her hand and suggested "Marie Curie High School." All suggestions were rejected in favor of a geographical name (consistent with the other high schools in the county).
