In the history of the United States, only 45 men have held the position of president. While some have passed away, others are still living and making their mark on the world. This Presidents Day, it's worth taking a moment to reflect on the living former U.S. presidents and what they are doing today.
At the top of the list is Jimmy Carter. At 98 years old, he is the longest-living president in American history. He has been an active humanitarian since leaving office in 1981, founding the Carter Center and working to promote human rights and democracy around the world.
Barack Obama and Bill Clinton also belong to the exclusive group of living former U.S. leaders who can be celebrated this Presidents Day. Obama has been busy since leaving office in 2017, writing books, producing documentaries, and speaking out on issues such as climate change and gun control. Clinton has also stayed active, focusing on his philanthropic work through the Clinton Foundation and speaking engagements.
