Ben Carson at The National Prayer Breakfast

18 02 2013

Check out Orrin Woodward’s post from last week showing Ben Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast speaking the truth. I will let the write up by Mr. Woodward and the video speak fot itself, but I will add that when truth is spoken it is music to the ears! Thank you Mr. Carson for having the courage to speak the truth no matter who is watching.

Enjoy, Steve Leurquin

 

Dr. Ben Carson at the National Prayer Breakfast

Posted by Orrin Woodward on February 14, 2013

I woke up early this morning excited to watch Benjamin Carson’stalk at the National Prayer Breakfast. So many people have emailed me the link and said it reminded them of concepts shared by Oliver DeMille and me in the soon-to-be-released book LeaderShift. There is a law of life, similar to the one in science, that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Today, America is drifting further and further towards a socialist nanny state; thankfully, however, a reaction is rising amongst leaders from all fields of life who are concerned about the direction of our society and are willing to do something about it. I sincerely believe that character-based leadership is needed more today in America than at any point since the founding of our nation.

Ben Carson, in this speech, made a stand for truth on education, history, and leadership. Not surprisingly, many of the concepts discussed in Dr. Carson’s speech are outlined in LeaderShift to help solve our national malaise. In other words, concerned Americans are not alone. Nonetheless, we need many more leaders to stand up and launch the LeaderShift! When faced with great challenges, the citizen’s choices reduce to two main paths: either shrink into silence and oppression or rise into leadership and liberty. What choice will the reader make? I believe we are entering great times for courageous leaders to live.

Sincerely,

Orrin Woodward

This was awesome, I cannot believe how many people outside of our community saw this and have commented to me about it also. It is exciting to see the tide as it begins to turn and I agree with Emily-the Leadershift book is gonna be a huge tipping point-thanks for continuing to spread the word!

Great speech but I think a lot of people are reading too much into it. Even when he disagreed with the president methods he still agreed that everybody needs coverage. This was a very mild and sensible speech. Nothing like what was heard in the Republican Primaries… He even advocated ** GIVING ** everybody and account that the state would contribute to… etc. I can see how the goals are laudable but the details…. how much would the state contribute to whom? to what extent. etc… Anyhow I see his speech as contribution not a derision or an attack. Not surprisingly I hardly read any discussion or mention to the bald eagle reference….

Great re-post, Steve. For those of you who haven’t seen it. There is a movie about Dr. Carson called “Gifted Hands”. Great movie about the power of reading.

Wow! That was a Great speech, I agree with Steve… Very interesting to not see Obama clapping on several of the doctors points and even looking away at times also. It took a lot of courage for him to stand up there and deliver a very powerful speech. I’m sure however like he covered early in his talk, he probably offended someone who closed their ears but will still criticize him anyway. He has my applause as does everyone who is willing to educate themselves for Freedom & Liberty!!

I liked what he said about being politically correct actually being very dangerous to our society.

Sounds like he might have gotten a sneak peak at the book LeaderShift. Would love to see him talking with Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille in the future!

What a great video! It was interesting seeing who clapped and who didn’t clap when he was making sound points and even offering solutions.
