  1. Interesting… never knew this…well, realized this date.

    Once briefly dated a guy with this b-day… he still owes me $15. bucks.

    I know, TMI. 🙂

  2. …and my birthday. Was always aware of the magnitude of the date and feel honored to share such a birth date with so many poignant moments in history. Will smile every time I walk into the NMAAHC. Nice work, Ava!
