Anyone who has viewed the Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorial in Washington would agree with the thoughts of Bob Ray Sanders (7/21, Opinion, “FDR memorial is exceptional in its humility”).
My family visited the National Mall in 1999. It had been several years since our last trip there, and we were moved by the FDR memorial. A quote is located just to the left of the last figure in the breadline: “The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have little.”
Our world would be a much different place if this was the uppermost thought in the minds of our government and corporate leaders.
