My name is Josh Carter and I am starting a Podcast.
Through this podcast, I would like to share my expectations of our country through living my life as President Jimmy Carter’s grandson. I am sharing the lessons that he taught me through my life, stories I have grown up hearing, the role of government, and how we can understand the forces that shape the country we live in.
The title of this podcast is Unchanging Principles. This title comes from my grandfather’s high school teacher Miss Julia Coleman, who told her class that we must adapt to changing times while holding on to unchanging principles. This idea stuck with my grandfather for his entire political career, and he used that line to open his Inaugural Address to the country immediately after he was sworn in as President on January 20, 1977.
Those Unchanging Principles are the values that, at one time, all Americans were proud to share. As my grandfather taught in his inaugural address, our Unchanging Principles are our nation’s commitment to humility, mercy, justice, equality between races, regions, and religions. They are the elimination of mistrust through mutual understand and respect for diversity. They are ensuring respect and equal treatment under the law. It is a commitment to the truth, and it is built on a foundation of unwavering commitment to human rights.
These are all values that we have collectively lost by actions taken by the Trump Administration. But I believe that we still have a chance that those things can again define America.
