Excerpts from President Jimmy Carter's Inaugural Address

Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.), thirty-ninth president of the United States, served as president from January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981.

President Carter discussed his goals for the speech in his 1995 book, "Keeping Faith: Memoirs of a President," (University of Arkansas Press):

"I ... focused on those concerns that embodied my most important values--human rights, environmental quality, nuclear arms control, and the search for justice and peace."

This is an excerpt. The full speech can be found here: http://www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov/documents/speeches/inaugadd.phtml

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
