 Marilyn Monroe “Norma Jeane”,
 grew up without knowing her
 father, and her mother was
 mentally ill. Marilyn was
 abandoned to multiple foster
 homes. She was nearly smothered
 to death at two of them, and raped
 at 6 of them. Family friends of
 Marilyn's took her in for a few
 years, their names were Grace and
 Doc. Goddard. But unfortunately
 Doc’s job was transferred and they
 couldn’t afford to take Marilyn with

 married her boyfriend Jimmy

 south pacific though so she went
 on to work in a factory..

Death of Marilyn
Some claim that Marilyn’s Death is unknown
  but others claim that at 36 years old,
  Marilyn Monroe was pronounced dead
  and was found with an empty bottle of
  sleeping pills by her bed (biography).

“ Her humor, as attested to by the people
   who knew her, her compassion for all
   living things, her desire to be loved, her
   wish to have children All of these things
   are difficult to see in the glamorous
   woman we know as Marilyn Monroe. But
   she was human. Beneath it all, She was
   a little girl who hurt just like anyone
   else. Perhaps that is the most important
   lesson to be learned from her life and
   her death. Illusions are just that. We
   must always try to see the person
   beneath them” (biography).
  What makes
 Marilyn Monroe a
I believe Marilyn Monroe is a hero because of the troublesome
   childhood she went through and how she went on to be an amazing
   icon and role model for many young women. For Marilyn to have
   been abused and hurt through out her young days, she became one
   of the most kind hearted well known women in history. She had
   turned her life around from bad to good and always wore a smile. To
   see someone do that, is an inspiration and a hero to me and
   hopefully others. She also didn’t believe in looking like every other
   model. She loved the size she was and expressed it proudly.
   Though her death may be unknown and from what is said not so
   heroic, she still lived a heroic and inspiring life. Marilyn Monroe is a
   true icon and hero.

“It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”
