The world-renowned physician Dr. Ben Carson, who spoke openly before the president at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this year was the Keynote Speaker at the Vitae Foundation’s Pro-Life Benefit Dinner.
He encouraged the crowd to grow a backbone and have a spine to speak the truth and to not be politically correct. He went on to say that there is no one that we can afford to throw away and every life is beautiful and deserves to be treated with respect.
What can you do to make a difference? Let’s start by getting educated. Read Dr. Carsons book, America the Beautiful, Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great. Let’s see what we can do to turn this nation around.
Alexis Tocville said,
“America is great because America is good.
If America ceases to be good, it will cease to be great.”
I believe there is no way America can be good while innocent little baby boys and girls continue to die.
Overview of Dr. Carson’s book:
In America the Beautiful, Dr. Ben Carson helps us learn from our past in order to chart a better course for our future.
From his personal ascent from inner-city poverty to international medical and humanitarian acclaim, Carson shares experiential insights that help us understand
… what is good about America
… where we have gone astray
… which fundamental beliefs have guided America from her founding into preeminence among nations
Written by a man who has experienced America’s best and worst firsthand, America the Beautiful is at once alarming, convicting, and inspiring. You’ll gain new perspectives on our nation’s origins, our Judeo-Christian heritage, our educational system, capitalism versus socialism, our moral fabric, healthcare, and much more.
An incisive manifesto of the values that shaped America’s past and must shape her future, America the Beautiful calls us all to use our God-given talents to improve our lives, our communities, our nation, and our world.
