Closing Thought–23Oct19

The very last time that I voted for a winner in a presidential election was Jimmy Carter…..I liked his stands on foreign policy and the environment….but that is not why I am writing.

In the last couple of months Pres, Carter has taken a couple of falls…first a hip replacement and then recently a black eye and 14 stitches on his forehead……and he has fallen again in his home in Plains…..

Former US president Jimmy Carter has a fractured pelvis but remains in good spirits following his second fall in just over two weeks. The 39th president has been hospitalized after a fall at his home in Plains, Ga., reports the AP. Carter Center spokeswoman Deanne Congileo described the fracture as minor. Her statement said the 95-year-old is in good spirits at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center and is looking forward to recovering at home.

This is the third time Carter has fallen in recent months. He first fell in the spring and required hip replacement surgery. Carter fell again this month and despite receiving 14 stitches, traveled the next day to Nashville, Tenn., to rally volunteers and help build a Habitat for Humanity home. Carter is the oldest living former president in US history. He and 92-year-old Rosalynn recently became the longest married first couple, surpassing George and Barbara Bush, with more than 73 years of marriage

He, Carter, is a living treasure and should consider retiring from all his duties with the exception of his Sunday School class…..and the other hand he may need t keep busy for he thinks he will expire if he becomes idle…..then please get some live in help for him so that he does not have the falling episodes as often.

We cannot afford to lose the last statesman to hold the office of president…..

  1. He’s an old man now, so falls should be expected.
    I also cannot recall the last time I voted for the winning party.
    That thought goes back a VERY long way. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
