I was always a science nerd growing up in Panama. Contrary to popular belief, most people around the world have a lot of good feelings toward Americans. I read a lot about President Carter as a young man. I found out he was a nuclear physicist and worked on nuclear reactors. In my mind, that was the coolest thing ever. A President that was a nuclear engineer. I had already made up my mind to be an engineer. And guess what? The president of the United States was an engineer, a man of science.
I was impressed with Carter’s promoting the development of synthetic fuels and placing solar cells in the White House. But I was most impressed with his life after the presidency. Of all the presidents living or dead, I do not think there is one more impactful in what he does for humanity. I became a supporter of Habitat for Humanity because I saw President Carter building houses. An ex-president was hanging with the commoners building homes with his bare hands and a hammer. As I learned more about the man, a selfless soul who did not forget where he came from as he helped millions, I wanted to follow that path.
President Jimmy Carter is in hospice at his home. The man who seemed indestructible from illness may on his last leg. But at 98, a servant to society, all I can say is “Mision Cumplida” — Mission Accomplished.
