Alright, so I missed a week. Sorry, my malaise ate last Wednesday, but I’m back.
This week’s offering is not from a president but from the descendent and wife of one. Born in October of 1884, and a niece of Teddy Roosevelt, she was first an activist. Then a first lady and activist – then a diplomat and activist. She was controversial in her time for her outspoken stance against racism and helped cement the role of first ladies in a more modern era. She worked on advancing human rights until her death in November of 1962. Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you, Eleanore Roosevelt:
“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
As always, this is for Silver Threading at:
See you next week, unless I get sick again… :p
