On this day in 1912, the Girl Guides - who would later become the Girl Scouts of the USA - were
founded. The organisation was founded by Juliette Gordon Low, after she met the founder
of Scouting - Robert Baden-Powell. The first Girl Scout meeting took place on March
12th in Savannah, Georgia, with 18 girls attending; there are now over
3.2 million members. Low wanted to give America and the world “something
for the girls” and aimed to encourage girls to become active citizens
and to develop their full potential. They soon became an important group
in the USA, with Martin Luther King Jr describing the Girl Scouts as “a
force for desegregation” in the 1950s and 1960s.
“I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight!” - Juliette Low at the first Girl Scout meeting
One of my favorite spreads in “It’s Not Jack and the Beanstalk”. This
was the title page. I wanted to establish right from the beginning Jack
and Bessie’s friendship and to show them in a moment together before the
story began. If you look really closely, you can see the silhouette of
the Giant’s castle in the cloud shadows created by the moonlight.
Also, there is a hidden fairy tale character in this spread. Probably
the hardest one to find.
Marine Le Pen is leading in the exit polls in the French presidential election, THE FEMALE DONALD TRUMP IS LEADING, FLIP ALL PANCAKES AND PANIC. I hope the French people won’t make the same mistake we did in USA. Nazis groups are rising all through Europe as well I'm so scared :(
