Visit of Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorial and Lesson learned

The beginning of this week was marked by the wonderful visit the AAPD team had Saturday the 25th of June at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial.It has been a very wonderful and instructive visit for me.

The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is a presidential memorial dedicated to the memory of the US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and to the era he represents. Franklin Roosevelt memorial was dedicated by President Bill Clinton on May 2, 1997.

At Franklin Roosevelt Memorial the tour guides describe the symbolism of the five main water areas as:

  • A single large drop represents the crash of the economy that led to the Great Depression.
  • Multiple stair step drops are a representation of theTenessee Valley Authority dam building project.
  • Chaotic falls at varying angles represent the World War II.
  • A still pool represent Roosevelt's death
  • And a wide array combining the earlier waterfalls is A retrospective of Roosevelt's presidency

Lessons Learned

Even if of Franklin Delano Roosevelt was living with a disability he had been the only American president to serve more than two terms because of his ability and skills in leadership. Franklin Delano Roosevelt took the USA from the Great depression of 1930s to the great victor of 1945 after the World War II. Since then the US became a very strong country and a cradle of decision making.
