The Carter Center Human Rights Conference

I am sitting not far from Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter as I blog this. Rosalyn Carter is still as beautiful as ever.

If you ever have lunch with Jimmy Carter, be sure to try the peach cobbler.

BUT -- it isn't the famous Presidential White House coffee. Maybe I'll send down some Peet's when I get back.

Today at the Carter Center Conference on Faith and Freedom: Protecting Human Rights as Common Cause we have heard from former President Jimmy Carter, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour and many distinguished Human Rights Defenders.

This afternoon's session began with a discussion that included both an Israeli and Palestinian human rights activists.

Please come visit the Social Edge blog, where I am following the conference. Join the discussion -- leave a comment.

You can also visit the blog at the Carter Center's own site.

More to come.
