Women Winners

March 14, 2012

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s me, Lily, and I hope you’re all having a good March day. And speaking of March, it’s time to celebrate Women’s History Month! Last March, I dedicated my post called History is “Her”story to an extraordinary woman named Elizabeth Blackwell, who was the first woman in the United States to become a doctor. (You can read that post here.) And this year, I’m dedicating my Women’s History Month post to another awesome woman named Rachel Carson. Have you heard of her? Ping & Pong and Day Z Girl told me about her.

Rachel Carson was an American marine biologist who lived from 1907-1964. She spent her career writing about science and showing how all living things depend on each other to survive and are interconnected. She also wrote a very important book called Silent Spring about the dangers of pesticides. She said that pesticides poison the food of many animals and are harmful to human food, too. Her book was so important that it helped to limit the use of pesticides in many places around the world.

So, on behalf of all plants, animals, humans, and Hospital Critterz, I’d like to thank Rachel Carson for helping to keep our environment safe and protected. And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
