SAINT JOAN OF ARC

“She was a quiet country girl until she got caught up in the turmoil of her day. I am always curious about the lives of famous people before they become famous. Usually remarkable people lead
very mundane lives before fate deals them their hand. Perhaps if Joan were alive today, she would have a cell phone glued to her ear, giggling about boys with her little friends rather than being burned atthe stake with green wood.”
