THE ROOSEVELTS

Great Leaders

  • Aired: 09/14/2014

  • Rating: NR
Ernest Hemingway once said, "The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places." Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, were all broken by life and faced their share of adversity. And, perhaps, it was the strength from their broken places that helped them to become three of the greatest leaders of this nation's history.
