Ben Carson, his mother, and a library card

August 27, 2015

In an age of incivility and a lack of reason, Republican Ben Carson (in defense of Democrat Bernie Sanders) gives a shout out to his mother and her library card. It does not get much better than this in terms of civility and reason.

May we all live in an age of civility and reason, soon, mliswilltravel.

“I grew up in neighborhoods most Americans were told to never drive through. I saw bullets, drugs and death in the same places I played tag and ball with my friends. Both of my older cousins died on the streets where I lived. I thought that was my destiny. But my mother didn’t. She changed all of that. She saved my brother and me from being killed on those streets with nothing but a library card. My mother knew what the problems were and she shielded me and my brother from them. I can tell you she wasn’t worried about Socialist senators from tiny rural states. “BlackLivesMatter” could learn from her to focus on the real sources of our hopelessness.” ….

Carson added: “There are many things to be angry about when you are consumed by hopelessness. Bernie Sanders isn’t one of them.”
