Eleanor Roosevelt – The Woman who Made a Difference
Have you ever heard these sayings? “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people” and “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”? And what about “Friendship with oneself is all-important because, without it, one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.” Do you know who wrote these famous words? Well, they all come from one of the most revered and influential women in the twentieth century. And despite some difficult circumstances in her childhood, she married Franklin Roosevelt in 1905. He was the president of the USA from 1933 to his death in 1945. Thus, making Eleanor Roosevelt the longest-serving first lady of the USA. After WWII, as the Cold War superpowers were lining up against each other, tensions were brewing over Cuba, and as the Palestinian issue was taking shape, one lone woman was asked by then President of the United States, Harry Truman, to achieve the impossible. But she did more than that. She changed the world forever. And she did it in a most unassuming way.
