Tasked with picking something interesting enough to make a complete website - I decided to tackle fairy tales. Fairy tales have always fascinated me because of their enduring qualities. The stories have traveled all over the world, for thousands of years, and they are still relevant to this day. Growing up I thought all fairy tales were for children; it wasn't until I was much older that I learned many of the original fairy tales I knew were watered down to meet acceptable societal standards. Though we've heard them over and over again, the stories never get old. So many artists are reinventing them and creating new ones of their own. To me, there's something very magical about that.

The Presidents in Peril digital library exists to educate users on American presidents who have been assassinated, or have narrowly escaped attempts on their lives, while in office. The digital library was created to celebrate the history and achievements of the United States Presidents and to inspire a wide variety of users from diverse backgrounds, to learn and appreciate American presidential history. We also hope that this library may inspire patriotism in United States citizens.
