An Inspiring Thought for Today...


During her tenure as First Lady from 1933 to 1945, Eleanor Roosevelt redefined the nation’s idea of how the President’s wife should pass her time. 

She called weekly press conferences with women journalists, personally wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column sharing her thoughts on the issues of the time, fought for civil rights, and sought to help refugees in the midst of World War II. 

In a time when wives, especially political wives, were meant to be quiet supporters of their husbands, she was a bold pioneer, leading by example to show all the good that women can do in the world.
