Terry Fox

Posted by Scott On April - 26 - 2011

The Jun/July 2011 issue of Canada’s History magazine features Terry Fox on the cover.  This iconic Canadian Hero looks almost god-like and is the eqiuvelent of Life magazine featuring JFK or Vanity Fair featuring Marilyn Monroe.

Every magazine has its icons…for Scientific American it is Darwin.  Find your icons and don’t be shy to celebrate them.  Your readers will reward you.
