Quote of the Month

"It doesn't matter what you look like or where you come from if you have knowledge."
Dr. Benjamin Carson.

Judy tells me that Dr. Carson is from Baltimore and that there is a movie coming out about him. Gifted Hands stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as Dr. Carson and is based on his first autobiography. Dr. Carson is the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins. President Bush awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom which is the nation's highest civilian award in June of 2008.

"What my life kind of indicates is it's not where you came from but where you're going that counts and that you have a lot to say about where you are going," Carson said in an interview about the movie. He also says he personally pushed for a TV movie instead of a feature film because he wanted more people to be able to see it for free.

Impressive man.
