St.Lucia Celebrates 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.
Nobel Prize in Economics – 1979
Born January 23, 1915 - 1991
Nobel Prize in Literature – 1992
Born January 30, 1930 - current
For more info:
January 17 to January 23rd, St.Lucians will celebrate Nobel Laureate Week 2010, "Celebrating Excellence at Home and Abroad."  

Do not forget the American achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King on MLK Day which is January 18. Also January 20, marks the one year anniversary since President Barack Obama was 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."
