El Dr. Ben Carson y su inspirador mensaje

Dr. Ben CarsonBen Carson nació en una familia muy pobre de Detroit. Esa circunstancia no le ha impedido llegar ser uno de los neurocirujanos más reputados del mundo.

Más abajo he transcrito el texto en inglés y luego lo he traducido al español para que quienes no sepan inglés puedan seguirlo y entenderlo y, de paso, si lo desean, aprendan un poquito de inglés.
