Doctor Carson is not just a role model for the black community, but everyone, everywhere. He is truly, as they say, a gentleman and a scholar. His soft-spokenness belies a high-powered intellect, a necessity in the upcoming national debate about our inner cities and the never-ended cycle of poverty and spiritual destitution with which it is cursed. His arrival on the political scene could not happen a minute too soon. He is “just what the doctor ordered.” All of our youth should aspire to emulate Doctor Carson—on every level—personally, scholastically, spiritually. He is deserving of our prayers and steadfast support.
