Like all of us, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a human being. He had flaws, made mistakes and history loves to pick sides for the “good guy-bad guy” debate. There is no dismissing certain facts though;

  • He was stricken with Polio in the prime of his life
  • Forced the lead a nation through the worst economic crisis in US history
  • Forced to lead the US through the Second World War

Through it all, it has been repeatedly said that he was always smiling and always focused on solutions.

“Misery may love company, but company typically does not love misery. Keep smiling.”

-Bryan N Nann
