A Man With No Bounds Essay

1435 words - 6 pages

Franklin D. Roosevelt he is not just a person, he is a legacy the way he approached problems in his time “in charge”. The way he spoke to people was just outright amazing, like in his Infamy Speech after Pearl Harbor when he said, “With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph -- so help us God.” While in his long presidency, Franklin D. Roosevelt was considered by many, a amazing president who made all the right decisions.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was at the time an important notable person that had a amazing power to fix problems with the right decisions. He became notable because in the worst days of the Depression he did not doubt himself with the problems ahead, yet he could still be confidant he could make the future better. (8) How did he do it? How did he fix something that was so “broken”? Franklin D. Roosevelt did it with his strong willingness to try everything, always having faith he would find a solution. (8) Franklin D. Roosevelt had acquired an adequate amount of courage after going through his disability. (8)
Franklin D. Roosevelt’s origins begin in New York where his life of success and hardships begin but with his great decisions he gets through it. (11) He was born on January 30th, 1882 (2) to his parents James and Sara Roosevelt where he then spent his youth in Hyde Park, New York which is about 50 miles north of New York City. (11) Franklin D. Roosevelt lived on a large estate where he was tutored until the age of 14 when he was sent to a school away from home. (11) The school Franklin D. Roosevelt then started to attend was called Groton which was a college preparatory school. (2) So Franklin D. Roosevelt had a pretty simple rich family life as a kid which allowed him to do great accomplishments pretty easily.
Before Franklin D. Roosevelt was president, what was he? It seems like no one knows because the majority of people know only what he did as president not his previous positions. Franklin D. Roosevelt started out after first unsuccessfully going through law school then proceeding to work in New York City, in a law firm where he worked for Carter, Ledyard, and Milburn. (11) He was then told by some of his friends who were democrats that he should run for political office, he then jumped to the chance which was a great decision as he finds out and ran for state senate in upstate New York where he won for two terms but ended up not finishing his second one. (11) Through his work in the state senate he befriended a Mr. Woodrow Wilson who happened to be president at the time. (11) Wilson then gave Franklin D. Roosevelt the position of assistant secretary for the Navy. (11) So by the time Franklin D. Roosevelt finally came to be president he had an abundance of experience with law and politics as well as helping people.
Out of all the 44 presidents there have been Franklin D. Roosevelt held the spot for the longest time, 4,422 days to be exact. (6)...
