Image result for fdr first inaugural images

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. And I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days.

From President Franklin Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address March 4, 1933.

    • My parents recounted their growing up experience during those days. The times on the farms were harsh. I wouldn’t want to actually live then, but there was a certain wholesomeness about the people of that era.

    • one of my grandmothers was always telling me stories of growing up on the farm etc- it always reminded me of The Waltons.. my other grandparents didn’t look on those times as nostalgically.
