Jimmy Carter isn’t letting an injury stop him from getting back to work. The Tennessean says, “While rushing from church to lunch, Carter fell and hit his forehead “on a sharp edge” in his home in Plains, Georgia. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution adds:
The Carter Center announced that he “required stitches above his brow.”
The statement also indicated: “He said he feels fine and wanted everyone to know that he and Mrs. Carter are eager to be at Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Nashville, Tennessee, Oct. 6-11, starting with the opening ceremony this evening.”
