On the sold out evening of Wednesday, August 6, 2014, Dr. Benjamin Carson honored the Calvin Coolidge Library Committee at New York's Woman's National Republican Club, by coming to speak to us about his latest top ten Best Seller: "One Nation:
 What We Can All Do To Save America's Future."

As he walked into the impressive Grand Ballroom of The WNRC, a Clubhouse that is listed on the National Register of Historical Places, over 300 people began to cheer before he even spoke a word. We were also treated to meeting his lovely wife of 39 years, Candy, who he mentioned many times during his talk.
 
 
Dr. Ben Carson, with his soft spoken words, shared his views of a common sense approach to solving the United States societal woes and political divisions. In his book , he tries to address these divisions and how to bring American's back together. He told the story about how-- " A PBS reporter asked me," How come you don't talk more about race?" The professor emeritus of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics at The Johns Hopkins Children's Center who retired in June 2013, answered, " I said because I am a neurosurgeon. When I open up a patient's scull, I'm working on what makes him or her a human being - not his skin."

 

He begins his book by telling us how he gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2003. Standing a few feet from President Obama, he warned his fellow citizens the dangers facing our country and called for a return to principles that made
America great!
 
He reminded us of what each person can do - Get back to the days when people had neighborhood meetings, town meetings - inviting everyone to sit down and talk about what kind of a nation we want to have and what we can do in order to get that . We must encourage each other and recognize the consequences of not doing that!  The standing room audience was spellbound!
 
At the end of his talk, all who attended gave him a standing ovation
cheering the entire time.

Dr. Ben Carson,  was then asked many questions and did not hesitate to answer all of them. He signed everyone's book, took pictures with them and generously took a bit of time to answer their questions. If anyone can help us bring America back to it's greatness, it is Benjamin Solomon Carson, Sr. MD.  He is one in a million and the
 real deal!
