    I broke up a long drive to Ft. Lauderdale two years ago to attend a high school reunion, by stopping overnight near Plains, Georgia. The next day I heard Jimmy Carter conduct a Sunday school class. The church was packed an hour before it started even though attending meant having bomb sniffing dog’s check out your car, having to empty your pockets and go through a metal scanner. Secret Service was more thorough than the TSA. That day an NBC crew was set up to record President Carter’s lesson, but they took the equipment down before he started so they could head to Orlando to cover what we later learned was the Pulse nightclub shooting. At 91 President Carter delivered a simple, thoughtful message punctuated with humor. His life inspires many to believe in the enduring American values that can see us through more difficult times. The media went to cover the violence. That’s their job. But right there in Plains I could sense what continues to make America great.

      Thanks for sharing this story with us, Al. I think that out all of our former presidents, Jimmy Carter has done the most to help the citizens of our country. His example of service to others needs no pomp and circumstance. It has a quiet attraction that inspires us to follow.

    Good quote, Allan. I appreciate Jimmy Carter much more now that he isn’t the President.

      His Habitats for Humanity homes has made it possible for a lot of people to profoundly change their lives. Volunteers as well as the recipients of the homes.

    I have come to an understanding and…yes, an appreciation for the “head shaking’ moments that fill the media stream as each moment that ‘takes me back’ is also an opportunity for refection and clarity which has resulted an re-introduction to the values, guiding principles, and morals of my childhood home. I now understand the importance of that which my mother taught in light of the childish; yet, painful verbal abuses that were endured and witnessed during playground moments. It is indeed a time of societal regression that will mandate the re-establishment of moral shame and moral dread.
