Neither obsessed with the presidency but went on to build homes for others and created the Carter Center that has had an enormous impact around the world. Few people have been as generous with their time and their love of humanity as the Carters.

Our world is several shades darker (and sadder) with Rosalyn's departure. Heartfelt sympathy to the Carter family, and overwhelming gratitude that I had the good fortune to be here for so much of Jimmy and Rosalyn's time on this planet.

and building something.....

and for many women too, it seems.....

To build a home side-by-side with the woman you love,
is a great part of the history of our country...

God Bless the Carters!

As my best friend, a lifelong Republican has always said,
"Jimmy Carter is the best ex-President of the United States!"---
because of all he did after leaving office....
and 'Habitat for Humanity' was probably at the top of the list

And people of strong Christian faith, who actually follow Jesus' teachings. Love your fellow human beings. Have compassion for others. And welcome strangers to a new land as friends.
