President FDR on Peace

“If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world, at peace.”

Franklin D. RooseveltFranklin Delano Roosevelt (January 30, 1882 – April 12, 1945), also known by his initials FDR, was the 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945) and a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression and war. A Democrat and the only American president elected to more than two terms, he facilitated a durable coalition that realigned American politics for decades. With the bouncy popular song “Happy Days Are Here Again” as his campaign theme, FDR defeated incumbent Republican Herbert Hoover in November 1932, at the depth of the Great Depression. Energized by his personal victory over paralytic illness, FDR’s unfailing optimism and activism contributed to a renewal of the national spirit.

  1. My sixteen year old wrote a rap song about life and peace and received a lot of attention on Facebook so then he chose to write a speech about Peace for an assignment at school and I was Knocked out by his ability to put into words the feeling he was having in his body… in a way that young people could understand…. I think I will post his rap song ! This post of yours is heart lifting… my child IS creating a world of peace just as you are!

    1. This is wonderful news! I love that your son is receiving accolades for a song that speaks to his generation – about PEACE! You must be beyond proud. Good for him. Good for You! I can hardly wait to read your post of his song. Words definitely have the power to heal, and move mountains. Mountains that dare stand between us and a world of peace. Thanks for this cheer of hope!

  2. FDR is one of my heroes. The last time Peter and I were in Washington, D.C., we went to the FDR Memorial – it was amazing. He was an incredible leader in one of the darkest times in Western history and he made a huge difference for the world. Thank you, Gina.

    1. Thank you SO much Cathy ~ I feel the same way. And I haven’t even been so lucky as to visit the FDR Memorial, yet. He was a truly inspirational person who made a wonderful difference. And his wife was one of my heros as well! Thanks again Cathy. Your visits always brighten my world 🙂
