Just one day after the Former President fell at his Georgia home and needed stitches to close the wound, he insisted he still volunteer at a Habitat For Humanity event in Nashville.
Clearly, he has a big heart – and this was a very important cause for him.
Fmr. President Jimmy Carter just turned 95 years old on October 1st – making him the longest-living president in the history of the United States! The second-longest was George H. W. Bush who passed away almost a year ago at the age of 94.
President Carter also has battled a series of health problems over the last few decades, but each time has pulled through with a great recovery.
This includes his recent fall just after his birthday which left him with a black eye and required 14 stitches.
Despite the injury, President Carter still was eager and ready to head out to Nashville for a Habitat For Humanity event where he and many other contributors like Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks, Senator Marsha Blackburn, and many many others.
Carter said that “he had a No. 1 priority and that was to come to Nashville and build houses” – even though he had to make a stop at the hospital for his injury.
This event will be President Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s 36th Habitat For Humanity project they have volunteered for.
