Dear Children, Good Evening.

Charles Darwin is a Symbol for the Celebration of Science and Humanity. Here is an interesting article for you to read.

February 12th, 1809: On this date, two great men were born — Abraham Lincoln, Emancipator of American Slaves and Charles Darwin, Emancipator of the Human Mind.

Let's have some Lincoln-Darwin Celebrations. Charles Robert Darwin was born in the town of Shrewsbury, England on February 12th 1809. The family house still stands and is currently the offices for the District Valuers. His first school is next door on Claremont Hill and his next school, Shrewsbury School, is now the town's library where an imposing statue of the great man sits outside. Shrewsbury also boasts a lively cultural scene with art, music and even a cartoon festival. With all its attractions, it is perhaps the setting that is the most impressive.
