Jimmy!


portrait of Jimmy Carter

My father went to a book signing event in North Carolina to meet President Jimmy Carter shortly after he released “Our Endangered Values”. He related the brief meeting with the former President, who asked my kid brother, “What’s your name?”

“Jack.”

“Hi Jack, my name’s Jimmy!” He said his name with the enthusiasm and cheer of schoolboy.

Like many people, my father did not like Jimmy Carter as President, but could not help but become wooed by Jimmy’s affable nature.

I became a Jimmy Carter fan after reading his courageous book “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid”.
