March is Disability Awareness Month. We would like to take a moment to share the story of an inspiring person who overcame adversity and represents our need to remember that inclusion matters.

In 1921, Franklin Roosevelt was a rising star in the Democratic party when polio struck him and left him with paralyzed legs. Determined that he would walk again so that he could resume his political career, he set himself a stiff regime of exercise. He never did achieve his goal of walking. But, urged by his wife and a close associate, he re-entered public life. At a time when disabled people were often sent to asylums, Roosevelt and his insistence on “good cheer” won the hearts of the voters, who elected him president not once but four times. Roosevelt led the country through the Great Depression and World War II, and never ceased to advocate for the disabled.
