Hello world!

This is a site to commemorate all of the forgotten sidekicks in the world; all of the scientists who helped win a nobel prize, but became nothing more than footnotes; all of the nurses without whom thousands of patients would have died; all of the people who are never cast in leadership positions but still are vital to our society. ┬áIt’s about time all of you got the credit you deserve.
