Eleanor Roosevelt was a lady I have always greatly admired. Her words exposed humanity. Words have power; I'm still striving to learn to use words wisely. I think it is easier to fit in with a crowd just being a people person. When you discuss ideas, not everyone is willing to allow others the freedom to think differently, and that is why some people bully the ideas people. You can turn to Eleanor for the answer to that problem too. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
Despite a tragic childhood, Eleanor Roosevelt went on to become one of the most inspiring political figures in US history. Activist, politician, First Lady, she shows us that true greatness comes from standing up for others, not belittling or bullying them.

Christmas is a time for love and sharing. It is also a time of devision and hostility when the bullies thy to endorse their belief on how Christmas should be spent on others.
I understand that it is politically incorrect to spell Christmas with an x rather than with Christ. I also feel that what one does on Christmas Day if it is legal and does not annoy the neighbours (like using a noisy motor mover during Christmas lunch time) is of no concern to others. Eleanor would have a better way of expressing that.
"Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticised anyway." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt.
