President Carter's Mission of Peace
By Sharon Fabian

1     The year 2002 added two big events to former President Jimmy Carter's impressive life story. One was his visit to Cuba. The other was his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. These were two high points in his long career as a peacemaker.
2     Jimmy Carter was president of the United States from 1977 to 1981. One of the biggest events of his presidency was a peace settlement that he arranged between the leaders of Israel and Egypt. President Carter invited Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to meet at the presidential retreat in Camp David, Maryland. There they talked about issues and conflicts that had plagued their countries for years and signed agreements called the Camp David Accords. The agreements said that the leaders of Israel and Egypt would get together again to sign a real peace treaty. And they did.
3     Carter was good at getting opposing sides to talk and to find areas that they could agree on. He continued to use those skills even after his term as president was finished. In 1982 he established the Carter Center. Its purpose was to help countries solve conflicts by mediation and cooperation. The Carter Center set goals of advancing democracy and human rights and also of promoting economic and social development around the world.
4     The Carter Center participated in important negotiations around the world. Jimmy Carter himself traveled to many nations to help to solve conflicts. He was also called on often to monitor elections in many of those countries. Jimmy Carter and other people from the Carter Center helped many nations make progress towards democracy and human rights.
