|Dr. Benjamin Carson|
He adds about Dr. Carson's inspirational life story: "Virtually everything was against young Ben Carson except for his mother’s attitudes and values. But, armed with her outlook, he was able to fight his way through many battles, including battles to control his own temper, as well as against external obstacles. Today, Dr. Benjamin Carson is a renowned neurosurgeon at a renowned institution, Johns Hopkins University. But what got him there was wholly different from what is being offered to many ghetto youths today, much of which is not merely futile but counterproductive."
