FC: Franklin Delano Roosevelt By: Ryan Tate | http://goo.gl/e6wI5
1: Bio poem Franklin Strong minded, average, thoughtful and sometimes snobbish Son of James and Sarah Roosevelt Lover of politics, Eleanor, and boats Who feels determined when he had polio, sad when a spring was going out of business, and worried when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. Who has been through polio, both world wars, and was in the NAVY. Who needs knowledge, friends and crutches or braces for his legs. Who fears danger for the country, getting polio again, and entering the war. Who would someday like to become president and later did, become a sailor, and become respected. Resident of the New York area Roosevelt
2: When he was only 38 years old, Franklin Roosevelt caught the deadly disease of Polio near his home in the New York area. Experts say he was in his warm house, than jumped into ice cold water, than sat in the wet suit reading letters, which made his body weak against infections like the Polio he contracted form somewhere else. | Franklin Roosevelt gets Polio By: Ryan Tate | http://goo.gl/onnoA | http://goo.gl/VXSbX
3: In 1920, Franklin and his friends went out on a boat trip and saw smoke rising from their camp, so they went to check and there was a forest fire starting. after an hour or so they beat the fire and decided to take a swim. The only body of water by them was the ice water off the coast of Campobello Island, where they were staying. That gave his system such a shock that he was vulnerable to other infections. He later survived the Polio, for it only affected his legs. Many say that he became wiser after the illness.

6: Dear Mom, I know you didn't want me going in to politics, but it was what I wanted to do. I made a living off of law, but it was kind of boring. I also really liked politics, and it was basically what I think I was made for. I showed you I was good at it when I became president obviously. Eleanor and I think that I would have done better in politics. I also will accept your apology when you did nothing when I was sick with polio. On the other hand, you did support me for almost my whole life and dad died when I was at a young age, so I have to thank you for that. I haven't kept you up to date with myself, though, so I will tell you I'm 58 years old and Eleanor is 56. I'm staying with Theodore for the weekend although I wish I could stay with you for a while. 5 days ago I had a seizure and the doctor said that another one is likely to happen so I think my life is almost at an end. In a couple of weeks I want to visit Palm Springs for the last time. Good bye for now. Your son, Franklin
