When my kids were children, I read a beautiful article in Reader's
Digest, it was in April, 1990...."Ben Carson: Man of Miracles"...later, a
beautiful book, "Gifted Hands"....published in 1990 also and that I
took out of the Library, where I was a voluntary secretary to the
Library.. ... That book was about a mother, who did so many wonderful
things for her two children, Ben and Curtis ...specially her youngest
one...who became a Pediatric Neurosurgeon...(the other one an engineer)....
That mother and this guy's life inspired me, Still do....Yes, .I am
talking about this book..'GIFTED HANDS', which became later a movie (in
2009) with actor Cuba Gooding, Jr...(coincidentally Cuba is my native
country, ah?. Well, you are right, these people I am talking about,
mother, son, etc. are blacks..and I read always to my kids, not only
about all good people in history, but also about Good Things Black
people has done too...without discrimination to anyone, the same way my
own parents raised me.....all the legacy of GOOD BLACKS to history and
the world, to USA, etc...were included in my kids' education....
.so, I guess that takes me out of the Racism nonsense talk and list
that sometimes people try to put us, every time we mention the bad
behavior of black people, or about president Obama..ok?.....It's a
shame that such a high percentage of Black people remain in the victim's
role, and don't do anything to get ahead, even with so much help now
Well, I recommend you read this book, but if you are not much of a reader, then buy the movie, rent it, but watch 'GIFTED HANDS'...about the life of a very conservative, Faith centered doctor, Black Pediatric Neurosurgeon and his incredible mother's guidance throughout his life...
I am honored to have read that book, watched the movie later, and bought the movie...So, if you want to see it and not spend any money, Just call me, and you can watch it with me at my home....
Maybe it will be a movie we can watch in those Cinema Afternoon for Friends I do at my home..like others like The Ultimate Gift, Auntie Mammie, Beaches, etc. etc..
