    President Carter may be one of the most beloved figures of our nation and any.
    We are all diminished by the death of one of the human family and especially those neighbors, family members to whom we have a connection.

    Speaking of faith, we are gratified by the faith of president Carter and that of any person on earth which is genuinely held and abided by even if we don’t share much of it at all.

    As the English poet said, “…think NOT that the bell tolls in vain…!”

    Now how can we get on with caring about one another across national divides, faith, languages and political differences?
