A REAL American Success Story - The Dr. Benjamin Carson Story
[Published on Feb 9, 2013
Ben Carson was born in Detroit, Michigan, on September 18, 1951. His mother, though under educated herself, pushed her sons to read and to believe in themselves. Carson went from being a poor student to receiving honors and he eventually attended medical school. As a doctor, he became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital at age 33, and became famous for his ground-breaking work separating conjoined twins.]
I love this man!! I have purchased his book, "Gifted Hands", I recommend it to everyone. He is what America is all about, Liberty, and Justice for all.
He would make us a wonderful president or vice president. He would make an excellent role model for any child of any race. He exhibits the ability to rise above your circumstances and no just survive, but to Thrive!! He does not whine about his poverty, and fights to get out of it. He is a Thriver! He prays everyday. And...I pray everyday too....but we must do the footwork for God. Dr. Carson has been blessed with "Gifted Hands".
Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson Sr., is an American columnist and retired neurosurgeon. He is credited with being the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins joined at the head. Wikipedia
He is an American success story. Dr. Carson battled his poverty, his mother's depression, violence, peer pressure, racists and bigots who stereotyped him as dumb, and unable to learn just because of his race! Even through insurmountable obstacles, Dr. Ben Carson, has risen above his circumstances, and proven that it can be done with God and a lot of work.
