Former President Jimmy Carter today accomplishes something few presidents have, and he won’t have to stop building houses for humanity, or giving speeches or any of the other dozens of projects on his schedule.
Today he turns 94.
To celebrate the occasion, the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta will lower admission to 94 cents. There will be a card for visitors to sign, or you can bring your own. Carter won’t be there, however.
It was not a smooth road on his journey to 94. In August 2015, Carter began treatment for cancer in his liver and brain. By December that same year, the Nobel Peace Prize winner announced an MRI brain scan showed the cancer was gone.
Carter initially made the announcement near the beginning of the Sunday School class he still teaches at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, a close friend and fellow church member said.
