Today is Florence Nightingale’s birthday. It is also International Nurses Day, honoring Nightingale and all other nurses around the world.
Florence was born into a wealthy family but instead of using her status doing something high-profile like her family wanted her to, she became a pioneer of modern nursing. She became known as The Lady In Chief for the way she cared for the soldiers during the Crimean War.

Mrs. Incredible can stretch every part of her body and is extremely flexible. She marries Mr. Incredible right before the government makes all the superheroes go into hiding. They have three children: Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack.
She is an amazing mother and cares for her children very much and helps save her husband when he gets capture by Syndrome.

Mother’s Day is coming up, this Sunday to be exact. Most people use this day to honor their mother’s for all the work they do and all they give up for their children. I know my mom is a hero of mine and I’m certain that at least a majority of you feel the same way.
Mom’s can inspire us to do great things or simply help us realize that they’ll always be there for us. I want all of you to think about your mother or the motherly figure in your life and write down all of their heroic traits. Writing these down may help you realize how important and amazing they are.
Don’t forget to thank them and give them a hug either!

This Friday is the opening weekend for the movie Iron Man. I’m incredibly excited because I love this character and I’ve always been a fan of comics in general.
So in honor of the movie coming out this week, I wanted to write up a profile for Tony Stark, the man who invented the suit to become the technologically advanced superhero, Iron Man.
Here is his profile!
Sit tight for the hero’s journey of Tony Stark from the movie once I see it!
