#TBT: assuring Grandma

Grandma Carter with my father, 1984.

1989.  Argentina was in some political turmoil.  I privately wrote my parents to ask that they be honest if they were in danger.  But my public face is reassuring, to my sisters and especially to my paternal grandmother.

This scan is of a portion of my letter to her, attempting to put her concerns to rest and provide some context.
