St.Lucia's 2 Nobel Laureates!

My birth country, St.Lucia which is only 238 square miles (27 miles long, 14 miles wide) has two Nobel Laureates and what's even more remarkable, they both share the same birth date, January 23, only 15 years apart.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Rather than wait for January 23rd, I felt it necessary to share their outstanding achievements now since next week is a milestone week for all black people. Martin Luther King Day is on Monday, January 19th and then on Tuesday, January 20th, President-Elect Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 
44th President of
The United States of America.


...And Barack Obama said it best, 
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.  We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
