I have read The Ben Carson Story and it is one of the best books I have ever read. Gifted Hands is also one of the best movies I have ever watched too. Ben Carson is really a God send. Ben Carson should have been our first black President. But then again, he is so gifted in the medical field and is not afraid to lead on his own merrit, unlike the Democratic puppet (front man for the other Democrats and their agenda) we have now. Stay where you are now Ben, you are too valuable to waste your time with our screwed up government.
