"As we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of the opportunity provided to serve self-interest when Al Gore created the internet; and we should also thank Mark Zuckerburg and Jack Dorsey for creating Facebook and Twitter out of the kindness of their big hearts and not the thinness of their small wallets."
-Ben Franklin, Autobiography (1742)

Inspirational Leadership: FDR and Dennis Rodman

Many people recognize FDR as the man that reinvigorated a nation. He led us out of depression and shepherded us through World War II. We here at Lost and Founders recognize him for other aspects of his inspirational leadership.

In 1884 the following photograph was captured:

We had a hard time deciphering this picture ourselves, is that a mullet, or an ugly girl...oh wait...it's Franklin Delano Roosevelt the first female President of the United States of 'Merica.

He was badass before Chuck Norris invented the term. He rocked a dress before Dennis Rodman could even spell the word, well he still can't but that is besides the point. Thank you FDR for not only leading our country out of depression but for your transformational inspiration.
