Inspired by the statue of Nike in Franklin's Library at Springwood
I once stood in Athena’s hand. I presided over a group of highly intellectual and advanced people -- Athenians. Success and victory were a norm. Thousands of years later, I watched another advanced group of people suffer during the early 1930s. Then, along came a man who brought about change and reform, who worked for welfare and prosperity. He passed laws and he approved projects, and soon enough, his country was successful and triumphant -- victorious through the defeat of recession. That man, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, is long gone now, but I stay here, in his house, as a reminder. I remind people of today of a man who stood for success and victory, things I have always stood for. I hope that through me, his legacy of victory for an entire country will forever live on.
