What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

D.C. Talk

Last week, our family took a mini-vacation to Washington D.C. We had an unbelievable time exploring the capital together.

One of the highlights was a visit to the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. This memorial which was built in 1997 bases tribute to FDR and his actions throughout his four presidential terms.

Throughout the memorial there were FDR quotes carved into the walls. Here are a few that I thought I would share for you to ponder:

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

“We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization.”

How is America living up to this today? How are you and I living up to this today?

More on our trip to DC to come….

Until the next post….
