What Are You Thankful For?

At The Carter Center, we are thankful for all that has been accomplished over the last year: historic elections in Sudan and Tunisia; the end of Guinea worm disease in Ghana; the first graduating class of mental health workers in Liberia; and so much more.

None of this would have been possible without you–our friends and supporters. Your ongoing generosity makes The Carter Center a life-changing force for millions of people around the world, and we want to say “thank you.”

    Sir Isaac Newton’s 17th century assertion we “stand on the shoulders of giants” is the broad foundation of my “attitude of gratitude” (Greenberg, J.S.). President and First Lady Carter are specific facets undergirding my love and appreciation of first, my family which nurtured and grew the second, which is my personal and professional role as an educator and counselor.

    I am thankful for all my family and friends, and all that my wife and myself have been fortunate to experience in a short time. I am also thankful to be able to support President and Mrs. Carter when I can. I am also thankful that world opinion seems to have greatly turned in favor of President Carter, and that people are finally understanding his genuine care for the well being of people. He really meant well and did the best that he could. The Carters’ have integrity and compassion, and the world is a better place because of their mission.

    I am in gratitude to GOD for all He has created, His mercy, compassion and grace. I believe that President and Mrs. Carter have helped to make GOD’s mercy, compassion and grace a reality in the world. I am grateful that this country was Blessed to have had President and First Lady Roselyn Carter in the White House. May GOD Bless them and their work for the rest of their lives and ever after.
