I toured the CDC in high school, completely oblivious to the fact that we had to wear gowns, gloves, footies and masks. Oh ... to be totally invincible again.

When I saw these exquisite illustrations of animal, plant and sealife by German biologist, Ernst Haeckel, I couldn't help but think about the scientists at the CDC spending every hour of every day staring into microscopes. I am thankful for their passion and expertise.

I am also thinking about our biology teacher Mrs Minick and how our summer reading was Robin Cook's Outbreak (long before it was a movie). Although it was fiction, it does give us a window into what is really happening.
