535. Independent

535. Independent
Definition: (adj ) free from outside control, self-sufficient

After seeing Val-Kill, our tour guide offered to show us Stone House, which was also on the property. It had been home to Eleanor's friends, Nancy and Marion. It is currently holding a few historical pieces, as well as some art pieces, waiting to be put together as a small museum. I think, in all, I was most impressed with Eleanor and her independence. She was the first First Lady to take up causes of her own and to advise her husband the President on issues of great importance to her, such as desegregation. I was extremely pleased to learn so much more about an influential women and all around solid person.
