To the editor: The passing of former First Lady Rosalynn Carter reminds us of the glory of a better time: an era when a simple life of hope, kindness, and basic human decency defined many important figures on the national stage.
With her spouse of 77 years, the former first lady lived a life of purpose. If only there were more like her in such a turbulent time in our nation’s history, a time when we find our people so divided.
Rosalynn Carter leaves a lifelong legacy of accomplishments. She made the world a better place. She enriched the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know her, as well as the lives of all Americans.
His memory will surely be an eternal blessing.

To the editor: The Carters were married for a total of 77 years, during which she was a lifelong active partner of her husband, former President Jimmy Carter.
What a contrast to former President Trump, who is married three times and began dating his second wife while he was still married to his first.
Rosalynn Carter attended Cabinet meetings, where she spoke freely, and traveled with President Carter, presenting her views on various topics, including mental health. She and her husband continued to work together to help others around the world after he became president.
They really were an exceptional couple.
