nobody is at the podium... but you can see his blazer just barely...
It was quite good, as Dr Carson has a way unusual and inspiring story. He grew up in the projects of Detroit with a single mother who only had a third grade education. He also attributes God for all of his talents and talks in the book about how God has played a huge hand in his life. It is wonderful.
But the awesome thing, he came to BYU to give a forum! Which we have every Tuesday at 11am in the Basketball arena and either a religious leader or a scholarly leader presents. It felt really special to be able to listen to someone who I read about and admired in high school.
Dr Carson was wonderful. Inspirational and funny, with a story that defies all odds.
And I can't help but post another engagement photo... humor me, please :)
