I salute and celebrate amazing people who are strong in the face of adversity and show their courageous hearts filled with faith in doing what is right. May their lives forever be a lasting testimony for us all in overcoming obstacles to creating good in the world, and to remember – always – the very real difference that a person of honor and principle can make.
The first birthday celebration cheer today is for Franklin Delano Roosevelt (January 30, 1882 – April 12, 1945).
I posted an earlier celebration to him at this link. Even though he passed away two decades before I was born, this incredible man and his teachings matter to me. Even though I never knew him, I will always remember him and his beloved wife Anna Eleanor Roosevelt. FDR is a lasting example about the strength of will and what a courageous heart filled with love can accomplish. Happy Birthday FDR! I am so glad you were born on this day!
