Marilyn Monroe was an amalgam of what was projected upon her and the fiction she created.  She remains an icon because a piece of her resides in every woman - particularly American women.  Her relatability transcends because vulnerability is a most human quality.  But for me, her relentless drive to become better and learn more is one of the attributes that inspires me the most.  All told, she is truly an American original.  Happy birthday, Norma Jean!!
