Former President Jimmy Carter is packing his bags for North Korea. It’s not that he wants to build Habitat for Humanity homes there. It’s not that he likes their kimchi. He’s not trying to set up the gochujang trade. He’s going to bring back a 30-year-old American whom North Korean soldiers seized after he crossed the border into North Korea from China last February.
Unlike Bill Clinton’s humanitarian mission, Carter is traveling as a private citizen, possibly with his wife and daughter.
Jimmy Carter is 85 years old, and shows no signs of slowing down in his humanitarian efforts. This is something we can all be proud of and inspired by.
