Something Tragic Just Happened To Ben Carson – He Needs Our Prayers Right Now

Sadly, we are all forged with challenges in life. With each challenge, we grow mentally and emotionally. And the strong ones are those who have been through the storms and survived.

Unfortunately, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson shared some terrible news on his Facebook profile, revealing that his mother, Sonya Carson, had passed away this Tuesday evening. Sonya had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease in 2011.

Despite the great sadness that Carson is in, he didn’t let his emotions stand in his way and posted a tribute to his mother on Facebook, who he always referred to as his biggest inspiration.

In his post, he started out by breaking down the news of losing his mother, and explaining how despite her coming from an “impoverished background with very little formal education, she somehow understood how success was achieved in our society.” Carson explained that when he or his brother tried to make an excuse for something that happened, his mom would quote the poem “Yourself to Blame,” by Mayme White Miller

Whenever I’ve heard Ben Carson speak on his life, he has often mentioned his mother and the wonderful person she was. In the midst of their poverty, she taught him to work hard and be responsible.
His mother, Sonya, raised Carson and his brother on her own and often worked multiple jobs just to fulfill their basic necessities. However, when she saw her sons were at risk of falling behind, she forced them to read two books a week and provide her with written reports.

A Mothers love is so special. I have great love and respect for Dr. Ben Carson and deep gratitude for his mother. Sounds like he had a wonderful mother and role model! Our thoughts and prayers are with Ben Carson and his family during this devastating times.

    Dr. Carson…I am so sorry to hear about your mother, but hearing your story reminded me of my mom! She, too, never completed high school….only the eighth grade. However she taught my sister and me how to speak and eat properly… to have good manners and to fit into society. ( my grandparents came from a Russia. Did not speak English). She was a strong , independent woman. Way before woman’s liberation. Taught me a lot. Miss her every day

    My prayers go up tonight for Dr. Carson and his family. I have read four of his books and feel as if I know his mother. She appeared to be a wonderful mother and her son reflects this.

    My deepest condolences Dr. I know what it is like to lose a mother. I know she must have been so proud of you, your story is one of triumphing over great odds. Wish more were like you.

    God Bless you at this time and always.
