Look Back On History
Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of Franklin D. Roosevelt cared for her husband when his polio condition took over his body, leaving him paralyzed. She was not only a mother and wife, but her husband’s caregiver. When her husband was elected president, Eleanor took on the role as the First Lady. She continued to assist her husband with his political responsibilities and everyday obstacles. Even after her husband’s passing Eleanor continued to advocate for those facing obstacles unable to care for themselves.
“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
