Who's Your Hero?


"
Florence Nightingale is my hero. I bought the Florence bear because my mom is a nurse. And then I read a biography about Florence Nightingale. The more I read about her life, the more amazed I became. She was absolutely an extraordinary, incredible, helpful, caring, and beautiful person. I wish I had known her in person, and I am very appreciative that I now know about her."

Your Question


Q: Why is there a "c." before the year Sacagawea was born? (Pat from Wyoming)

A: The exact year in which Sacagawea was born is unknown. It is believed she was born around 1788. "Circa" is another word for around, therefore, it is said Sacagawea was born circa 1788. Circa is abbreviated as the letter "c," and we write Sacagawea was born c. 1788. The year in which Sacagawea died is also unknown. She either died in 1812 or 1884. Although the exact year of her death is not certain, we do not place a "c." before the year because we do know she died in either 1812 or 1884, not around these years. Read More…
