What is stress¿¡

Stress is a state of mental or emotional restrain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.

Woodrow Wilson the 28th president

What did he deal with?

Woodrow Wilson during his presidency dealt with acute stress from his presidency during the First World War dealing with politics on foreign affairs. He addressed congress on 19 August, 1914 to call for American neutrality in the conflict. It was a very challenging situation for American sto maintain, given the fact that so many Americans were from Europe whom immigrated during the market revolution in the 1870's-80's.

It was also to maintain broad international reach of American commercial and economic interest at the same time with its Europeans exports. He majorly stressed that rational Americans would place their loyalty to the United States first and be "impartial in thought as well as in action"

So what is acute stress then?

    Acute stress reaction (also called acute stress disorder, psychological shock, mental shock, or simply shock) is a psychological condition arising in response to a terrifying or traumatic event, or witnessing a traumatic event.

So how does this relate to Woodrow you say?

This was a period where he grew up watching the end of slavery and the end of the south fall which was the traumatic event as he saw Robert E Lee walking out of Appomattox Court house in handcuffs. Now with that built up in his conscience he didn't want to evoke that past of war so when he was the president during the First World War he reacted by trying to stay isolated.

His quote during this stressful time

"Neutrality is a negative word. It does not express what America ought to feel. We are not trying to keep out of trouble; we are trying to preserve the foundations on which peace may be rebuilt."
