During the 2015 Presidential primaries, one name kept rising to the top: Ben Carson.
This celebrated surgeon was gaining steam among republicans as a smart, competent, and capable leader.
Despite vicious attacks from the hypocritical, liberal media, he became a notable figure among conservatives.
Today he serves President Trump as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. His success and triumphs as an African American is a testament to all citizens that with hard work and education, you can achieve your dreams.
Recently Carson shared some devastating news that is quickly spreading throughout social media.

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson shared devastating news on Facebook Tuesday evening- Carson’s mother, Sonya Carson, had passed away.
Carson shared a beautiful post and poem about his mother, who he had always cited as his biggest inspiration and had pushed him towards academic excellence from a young age, despite she herself being illiterate and desperately poor.
“Today, November 6, 2017, we lost my dear mother, Sonya Carson. Although she came from an impoverished background with very little formal education, she somehow understood how success was achieved in our society. If anyone had a reason to make excuses, it was her, but she absolutely refused to be a victim and would not permit us to develop the victim mentality either…”
It’s clear that Carson’s mother was instrumental in his success. Her inspiration and instruction helped make him the man he was, perhaps more than anything or anyone else in his life.
The loss of a parent, especially one as important as a mother, is painful to anyone. Caron’s loving tribute to his mother, during this time of mourning, shows the character and strength she passed onto her son.
Now is a time that Carson and the rest of his family need peace and time to heal. Remember them in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days, especially after he returns to work.
