I hope when i'm 83 years old I have 1% of the intestinal fortitude and impact that Jimmy Carter has. What an awesome role model.

Carter in Darfur shouting match -

The former U.S. president instead flew to a World Food Program compound in Kabkabiya, where he was supposed to meet with local community members including some ethnic African refugees, many of whom were chased from their homes by pro-government janjaweed and Sudanese government forces.

But as the meeting was set to get under way, none of the nongovernment refugee representatives arrived, and Carter decided to walk out into the town to try to talk with them.
