This was my favorite memorial in DC. FDR's thoughtful, hopeful quotes emerge effortlessly from the warm slabs, across waterfalls, and behind flowering shrubs. The entire memorial glows with tranquil energy, and is not somber or reflective like many others.
It's an uplifting and inspiring garden, complete with young children dashing around, grasping a handshake with the worn president in his wheelchair, petting his glowing dog Fala, and wrapping hugs around Eleanor's statue around the corner.
"The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith." —Franklin Delano Roosevelthttp://www.nps.gov/frde/ind...
