“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself ” (BrainyQuote). Frederick DelanoRoosevelt was a great man. Not only was he a revolutionary but he also kept peaceand prosperity to the United states. Roosevelt was the 32ndpresident of the United States. American statesman, and politician.
Rooseveltwas born on January 30, 1882 in Hyde park, NY and was unfortunately deceased onApril 12, 1945 because of Intracerebralhemorrhage. Roosevelt served as the US president for a pretty long12 years, from 1933-1945. Roosevelt had a quite large family with 5 children ( Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jr., ElliottRoosevelt, James Roosevelt, John Roosevelt, and of courseAnna Roosevelt). Franklin DelanoRoosevelt was a pretty busy man he’s been working and accomplishing his goalshis whole entire life with no retirement. Roosevelt started off as a democratwith a dream of one day becoming the United States president and he sure was agood one. In 1910 FDR won the US New York senate elections which uplifted hiscareer tremendously. During the awful great depression Roosevelt was directingthe US federal government which executed his Infamous New Deal.
Roosevelts NewDeal was a whopping success for everybody it was a series of public workprojects, financial reforms, and federal programs that he launched to help the USfrom the awful great depression ( EncyclopædiaBritannica). FDR won an incredible four presidential elections which instantlymade him a role model for all teens and young men out there. Roosevelt has setmany different goals during his life time and he accomplished many of them butone of his most important goals to reach was to get rid of German National Socialism and Japanese militarism.
Roosevelt guidedthe US through two of its toughest times, the great depression and of courseworld war II. Another whopping success from FDR was his “100 days”. In theseone hundred days FDR promised to issue changes for everyone and like anythingelse he ever said he did it.
The first accomplishment of the 100 days was the “bank holiday ” which closed all banksuntil congress meets. This ofcourse helped in ending depositors runs which werethreatening to destroy the entire US banking system. Another outcome of the 100days was the two key recovery measures, the (AAA) Agricultural adjustment act,and the (NIRA) National industrial recovery act. Both of these acts increasedprices of agricultural commodities, expanded the proportion of national incomegoing to farmers. Its strategy was to grant subsidies to producers of sevenbasic commodities—wheat, corn (maize), hogs, cotton, tobacco, rice, and milk—inreturn for reduced production, thereby reducing the surpluses that keptcommodity prices low. (EncyclopædiaBritannica).
Franklin DelanoRoosevelt was a pretty successful man but do you actually think all this successcame to hi right away? Of course not, in the real world you have to fight forwhat you want. Like any other person FDR had a lot of personal struggles while beingthe president. One of his all time struggles of couse was his paralysis(learning liftoff). When Franklin D.
Roosevelt woke upon August 10, 1921, with plans to take his wife and three older children outfor a sail in New Brunswick, Canada, he had no idea that it would be the lastday he would have full use of his legs. His paralysis made him weakerphysically and also psychologically speaking. Another awful tragedy that FDRhad to go through was thetragic death of his beloved wife Sarah Roosevelt in1941. FDR took a long time to recover after this sad loss.
Which reallyaffected him emotionally. In the end ofthe day its true that FDR was a great and honorable man. He sure well came tothe US when it needed him most and guided it through good times and bad times.Hel helped get the US out of the awful and maddening great depression. Hehelped set new laws and regulations because of the New Deal.
He boosted theagricultural economy in the US because of his extraordinary 100 days. FranklinDelano Roosevelt is truly a man of honor, dignity and trust. He will always bein the Hall of fame.
