AMERICAN WOMAN, MOTHER, FIRST LADY, AMBASSADOR, PACIFIST
Eleanor Roosevelt prevailed despite the many obstsacles that stood in her path. She remains a lasting imspiration to each generation. The message she shared was simple: E.R. wanted humankind to move away from regarding a man or woman from the point of view of religion, color, or sex, and instead, to respect the individual within each human being.
"We must inoculate our children against militarism, by educating them in the spirit of pacifism. Our school books glorify war and conceal its horrors. They indoctrinate children with hatred. I would teach peace rather than war, love rather than hate."
