Fear Itself

A photo of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial. I took this photo, because the line, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," is my favorite quote of all time. Seeing the actual words of Roosevelt engraved in stone was very fulfilling. How fitting that such a statement is engraved in stone, so that the inspiration of those words may last forever.
