What is up with these billboards? They are on Florence Blvd. Am I being ignorant? Can someone please explain?
Original Post
If you are than I am too. I have been asking people for about 3 weeks now and nobody knows!

Guess we'll have to stay tuned for the follow-up!

They are referencing that these men both had disabilities yet accomplished huge achievements.

I believe they are sponsored by Americans with Disabilities.
I have looked online for some type of connection but the only thing I come up with is some stupid email that went around about choosing a world leader (a story that compared FDR, Churchill and Hitler) and a story supposedly about Beethoven's mother. Other than that, nothing!
LOL No problem. I am not 100% sure about the sponsors myself. I know its some disability group just not sure which one.
They were both homeschooled for a time.

Did Ludwing van Beethoven go to high school?

There were no "high schools" per se in Beethoven's time. Most children were home schooled or in later years studied at a conservatory or university.

This is a small tribute to the famous FDR....

He attended the Grotan boarding school after about eight years of being home schooled.

I've wondered about the billboards, too. We homeschool and I thought about that angle. But Dark is right, I'm sure, about the sponsorship and purpose.

Helen Keller didn't do too badly for accomplishments in the face of disabilities.
They were both Freemasons, well FDR is confirmed and there is evidence to support that Beethoven was, so that could be the connection.
Okay. Maybe they were, but I don't believe it has anything to do with Masonry. Einstein was not a Mason so his inclusion on the billboards would rule that out.

The Masons current advertising is "Want to be one-ask one" I haven't heard of any changes. Wink
