Eleanor Roosevelt's Life of Soul Searching and Self Discovery
From Depression and Betrayal to First Lady of the WorldeBook - 2011
Transforming the power in Eleanor's story to your story starts now. Whatever the scale of your rendezvous with destiny, the fact remains it is up to you to live it. Eleanor's story is a 'do it yourself' guide that shows us how to: Persevere in the face of betrayal, critics and exhaustion - Leverage media tools to educate the public - Discern core issues behind the raucous babble - Forge friendships for just causes and personal support - Maintain a noble heart in times of trouble. From a childhood plagued with drunks and drama queens, Eleanor must now discard her dependency on Franklin and face off with her grand dame mother-in-law. Refusing to cave in to society's rules, Eleanor's exuberant style, wavering voice and lack of Hollywood beauty are fodder for the media. First Lady for thirteen years, Eleanor redefines and exploits this role to a position of power. Using her influence she champions for Jews, African Americans and women. Living through two world wars Eleanor witnesses thousands of graves, broken bodies and grieving families. She defies a post-war return to status quo and establishes the Universal Declaration of Human Rights within the U.N. She earns her way to being named "First Lady of the World." The audacity of this woman to live out her own destiny challenges us to do the same. After all, it's not about Eleanor. Her story is history. Her life shows us how to live.
