“I am a walking
example of that American Dream.
Growing up we had nothing. But I had a
library card and a mother that cared. I
read every book I could get my hands on because I wanted to escape dire poverty.
I had enough money to apply to one
college. I decided on Yale. What would
have happened had they said no? There
I met Candy and as a team we raised
three boys and treated 15,000 patients. I have traveled, treated patients, and
lectured in 57 countries. Along the way I
was awarded 68 honorary Doctorate
Degrees. And now this son of a woman
from Tennessee with a third-grade
education, whose ancestors were slaves, is running for President.” Ben Carson,MD.
