Courage Quote of the Day

John Gearhart

Stem Cell Research

John Gearhart: This was a decision that my mother had made following the death of my dad, who was a coal miner in Western Pennsylvania and I was placed in an institution called Girard College, which is sort of a strange name, but it was one that was set up by Steven Girard who was a banker and merchant and mariner, who funded the War of 1812 almost solely by himself, which is interesting. A very wealthy man and he had set up an orphanage, and so I was placed there for ten years.
