FDR and his best friend.

 

This is the original statue of FDR in this memorial.  He's not in a wheelchair -- or if he is, you can't tell.

This life-sized, realistic statue of FDR in a wheelchair was added later.  

While he was president, it wasn't well known that he was in a wheelchair... because CNN wasn't around yet!  

Eleanor Roosevelt 
(Mrs. FDR)
All of the quotes in this memorial seemed to deal with facing adversity, pulling together, and succeeding.  Karen (as always) was quite choked up.  Lou had to call 911.
Typical tourist wearing shorts despite the rain. 

Hey, we're from Seattle.  We like rain.
