The article presents information on the author's admiration for former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. In 1977, when the author was 11 years old, Carter was initiating steps that would lead to the historic Camp David peace accord between Egypt and Israel the next year. At a meeting between Carter and former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, the former asked the latter if he needed to use the restroom before they proceeded to the conference table. The author was astounded. He thought that if the leader of the free world could address such a basic human need, maybe he did care about making a difference after all.
