Poltical meet-ups and speeches

A little over a year ago, I wrote about Dr. Ben Carson, who has taken the political right by storm. About two months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting him in New York City at the New York Meeting; the monthly poltical confab organized by Mallory Factor and O'Brien Murray.

Dr. Carson gave an impassioned speech about common sense solutions to the ills and problems that America faces. He also was open about answering questions from the panelists, especially about his perceieved "Second Amendment Challenges" and even answered my question about the possible role of pop culture and entertainment forces influencing and promoting education among inner city youth.

Dr. Carson was then gracious enough to meet those who attended and pose for pictures, as seen above, and as he had done at CPAC 2014. It is unclear how successful the "Draft Ben Carson" movements will be, but I'm sure we will continue to hear from this man, who, as a doctor, has saved a countless number of lives, as we appoach the 2016 election.
