Chances are good that you’ve heard the song “American Pie” by Don McLean.
But if you were alive on February 3, 1959, then you’ll remember all too well The Day the Music Died.
McLean’s song memorializes the untimely death of singers Buddy Holly, aged 22; Richie Valens, aged 17; and J. P. Richardson, aka: The Big Bopper, aged 28.
These three artists died in a plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa along with their pilot, Roger Peterson.
On National The Day The Music Died folks still make the pilgrimage to the sight of their last concert together.
Their music, of course will never be forgotten.
In 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman to receive a medical decree in the United States.
In doing so she paved the way for women to gain entry and equality in the field of medicine.
Today, more than 35 percent of all physicians are female.
On National Women Physicians Day we honor the strides made by generations of women doctors and the birthday of our pioneering Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell.
And thanks for joining us on our journey as we Celebrate Every Day®.
