Quote of the Day -- Henry Clay

He goes for destruction, universal destruction; and it seems to be his greatest ambition to efface and obliterate every trace of the wisdom of his predecessors…He lives by excitement, perpetual, agitating excitement, and…has never been without some subject of attack, either in individuals, or in masses, or in institutions.

Quote of the Day -- Mary Ann Peters

We don’t shy away from big challenges, we chip away at them. River blindness existed in six countries in the Americas in 1996, but we have worked with each of them to deal with their unique circumstances. One by one, those countries have rid themselves of the disease: first Colombia, then Ecuador, followed by Mexico and Guatemala. Now the Americas are free of river blindness except for a remote area deep inside the Amazon rainforest—and we’re working on that with Brazil and Venezuela.

The longest journey begins with a single step. Thank you for walking alongside us.
-- Mary Ann Peters, CEO, The Carter Center
