Thank you! I think the sites speak for themselves but I enjoy the facts I learn about them and wanted to share that as well. I’m very glad you are enjoying my adventure.

FDR's statements as literally 'cut in stone' are sadly unknown to Donald Trump. Our leadership has sunk so terribly far from Roosevelt's.


My thoughts exactly! Well said!!!

I didn’t mean for this to become political but if you keep up with current events at all, it is hard not to make that observation.

In September 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called his friend, Supreme Court Justice Frankfurter, to the White House and asked the Justice to remember the wish that he was about to share:

"If any memorial is erected to me, I know exactly what I should like it to be. I should like it to consist of a block about the size of this (putting his hand on his desk) and placed in the center of that green plot in front of the Archives Building. I don't care what it is made of, whether limestone or granite or whatnot, but I want it plain without any ornamentation, with the simple carving, 'In Memory of ____'."

In 1965 the original memorial was dedicated as shown below.

The second memorial, on the Tidal Basin, was dedicated in 1997. It is spread out over 7 1/2 acres and consists of four outdoor rooms representing Roosevelt's four terms in office. There are sculptures, water features and many quotations. I've included just a few of the quotations. I think it would be good if everyone in government was required to visit this memorial and carefully read all the quotations.
