I think of Ben Carson as the “great American hope.”

My hope is that the all Americans, including African Americans, would use Carson as an example of what you can accomplish through hard work, attitude, and desire.

Did it ever occur to you that Carson believes in his comments on education, tax policies, and healthcare, and he was not “force fed” his comments as Bob Ray Sanders’ column suggested?

Carson should be a model for all Americans whether black or white.

He definitely is a hero to me.

I do not know if he would make a great President, but I do know that we should strive to be more like him.

It is unfortunate that some are disappointed by this very successful man.
