Fact# 5857: Henrietta Lacks died in 1951. The tumor that killed her has been alive and growing to this day. The tumor is immortal and was used to progress the Polio vaccine and is the jumping point for most human cell research to this day. Scientists have grown some 20 tons of her cells.
They forgot the part where they took the cells and grew them without her consent.
They also forgot the part where to this day her family and still-living descendants have not received any compensation for the use of her stolen cells.
They also also forgot the part where she was Black.

I miss who I was in Las Vegas.
Maybe it was the sun or the dazzling lights,

The city just felt like a new start.
A dream come true."
