Fun facts to know and share: some people who were born on this day are Harper Lee (a favorite author of mine), Jessica Alba, Saddam Hussein, Edward IV (the King of England at one point, kind of an important man), Yves Klein, Jay Leno, former President James Monroe, Terry Pratchett (I was so excited when I found this out) turned a day older today. Why do I know this? Because it's my birthday today too!
