Giv­ing back

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Your Daily Break -

Pres­i­dent Carter lost his re-elec­tion cam­paign in 1980. Some­times, ex­pres­i­dents don’t quite know what to do next, but not Jimmy Carter. He has been one of our busiest for­mer chief ex­ec­u­tives. And he has be­come one of the most re­spected and rec­og­nized Amer­i­cans in the world through his de­vo­tion to peace­mak­ing mis­sions around the globe.

Carter has worked for peace, hu­man rights and democ­racy in Bos­nia, Panama, Nicaragua, Haiti, Nige­ria, Ethiopia, North and South Korea and, of course, in the Mid­dle East.

Carter, now 92, and his wife still vol­un­teer one week each year for Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity.

Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton awarded Ros­alynn and Jimmy Carter the Pres­i­den­tial Medal of Free­dom in 1999.
