Ben Carson’s Political Views


Life is a twisted event. Sometimes, the hand a person is dealt can truly bring a person to their knees and deny them the pleasures of seeing blue skies and rainbows. For some, that denial fills their bellies with a raging fire that propels them forth from uncertainty into assured blessings. Sometimes, the mighty phoenix must rise from its ashes only to soar higher and higher with no mind to the risk of falling. While some dream to be lawyers or dancers or astronauts, some dream to heal the sick and tend to the wounded. To be a physician, one must take on many hours and years of post-secondary education. To become a surgeon requires not only a sharp mind but also a steady hand. Surgeons must spend between eleven to eighteen years of their time to be able to work on their own in order to perform operations and medical procedures as well as treat injuries, deformities, and diseases. This length of time does not even include what is known in the medical field as ‘continuing education credits’ or CEC’s. Most surgeons have a specialty such as gastroenterology or neurology in order to become experts in their field.
