The Carters

Posted: May 14, 2008 in Justice

Well, I didn’t get to meet the Carters tonight, but you can click on the picture to see even better just how close I got to it. President Carter means a lot to me personally. I received his book Living Faith as a Christmas gift in 1996, and it inspired me to begin a Habitat for Humanity affiliate in my hometown. That began a 12-year love affair with Habitat, including beginning another affiliate here in Jackson County, Mississippi. It was a personal honor to simply hear him in person and to be that close.

Interestingly, another former president spoke tonight – Emil Constantinescu of Romania. Some of you politicos may know all about Emil, but if you’re like me, you probably need help from Wikipedia which you can find HERE.

I patted him on the shoulder. How many of you have ever patted former presidents of Romania on the shoulder?
