Carter Battling Cancer

Jimmy Carter
The 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, has announced that he is battling cancer.

The cancer was apparently discovered during recent liver surgery, and it has spread to other parts of the former President's body.

Carter, who recently turned 90, has been a force since leaving office in 1981.  Some argue that he's been the best former President in history.  A force for global peace, fair elections, and better living conditions for the poor across the world through the Carter Center, Carter is a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Through it all, he's remained the same, humble Sunday school teacher in Plains, Georgia.

It goes without saying that I wish President Carter well as he battles this disease.  While there may have been better Presidents, there have been few better men to serve as President.
