The Life Of Jimmy Carter And What The Former President Is Doing Now

Jimmy Carter, the 39th president of the United States of America, began life a poor peanut farmer. He worked hard to support his wife and his four children, and eventually, he began a career in politics. He became the governor of Georgia, and eventually, he won the 1976 election.

Jimmy Carter is still a humble man. Back in his day, he hoped to abolish racism and end segregation. Things have certainly progressed since the ’70s, but we have a long way to go before America is as inclusive as Carter would have liked it to be.

Every Saturday, when former President Jimmy Carter is in Plains, Georgia, he takes a stroll with his wife, Rosalynn. Jimmy and Rosalynn walk for about a half-mile to Jill Stucky’s house. Jill Stucky is one of their oldest friends.

Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter were both born in Plains, Georgia. They still live there to this very day. They look like any other retired couple in Georgia, only they have secret service agents that follow them around.
