Here we have a 17-year-old Norma Jeane before she became known as the legendary Marilyn Monroe. Her life contrasted in so many ways…. she was rich and successful yet co-dependent (on the emotional front). She was highly insecure even though she was a sex and beauty icon. Despite her seemingly outgoing nature, she was so shy growing up that she developed a stutter. She flaunted for cameras, but behind the scenes, she remained shy and deeply insecure her whole life. Marilyn Monroe never managed to fully get rid of her stutter either. Dictation lessons only helped her mask it for work.

Pictured here is the ancient Roman theater at Leptis Magna, Sabratha, located in Sabratha, Libya, on the Mediterranean coast. The site was originally a Phoenician trading-post but became part of the Roman Empire, and its monuments were built in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. Leptis Magna was once a prominent city in Roman Libya. The city fell to the Vandals in 439 and was re-incorporated into the Eastern Empire in 533. It fell to the Muslim invasion in c. 647 and was then abandoned.The ruins of Leptis Magna are along the coast where the Wadi Lebda meets the sea. This particular site as a whole is one of best preserved Roman ruins in the Mediterranean.
