Inside this Book – Benjamin, is this your report card?” my mother asked as she picked up the folded white card from the table. “Uh, yeah,” I said, trying to sound casual. Too ashamed to hand it to her, I had dropped it on the table, hoping that she wouldn’t notice until after I went to bed. It was the first report card I had received from Higgins Elementary School since we had moved back from Boston to Detroit, only a few months earlier. I had been in the fifth grade not even two weeks before everyone considered me the dumbest kid in the class and frequently made jokes about me. Before long I too began to feel as though I really was the most stupid kid in fifth grade. Despite Mother’s frequently saying, “You’re smart, Bennie. You can do anything you want to do,” I did not believe her. No one else in school thought I was smart, either. Now, as Mother examined my report card, she asked, “What’s this grade in reading?” (Her tone of voice told me that I was in trouble.) Although I was embarrassed, I did not think too much about it. Mother knew that I wasn’t doing well in math, but she did not know I was doing so poorly in every subject. While she slowly read my report card, reading everything one word at a time, I hurried into my room and started to get ready for bed. A few minutes later, Mother came into my bedroom. “Benjamin,” she said, “are these your grades?” She held the card in front of me as if I hadn’t seen it before. “Oh, yeah, but you know, it doesn’t mean much.” “No, that’s not true, Bennie. It means a lot.” “Just a report card.” “But it’s more than that.” Knowing I was in for it now, I prepared to listen, yet I was not all that interested. I did not like school very much and there was no reason why I should. Inasmuch as I was the dumbest kid in the class, what did I have to look forward to? The others laughed at me and made jokes about me every day.
Inside this book –Think Big PDF Book by Ben Carson – Gifted Hands really isn’t about Ben Carson.” A woman said that to Cec Murphey, my co-author, after she had finished reading the book. “It’s a book about a mother and her influence. Even in the chapters where she’s not mentioned, she is still there — present in everything Ben does.” That woman’s perception may be correct. Certainly anyone who knows me or has read anything about me knows that my mother’s personality had a strong impact on my life. Because this is a book about Thinking Big and giving our best to help others, I want to tell you about my mother’s influence in my early years. In this chapter, Sonya Carson speaks for herself, using her own words to tell about raising my brother and me. Sonya Carson: My own life starts out like the end of a romantic novel. At age thirteen, with practically no schooling, I married a handsome man who promised to make my life happy and exciting. Until then, my life had not been happy or exciting. Although I remember almost nothing about my own parents, I do vividly remember moving from one foster home to another and being ignored or laughed at for being different from the others. To this day I don’t know how many children were in our family. I have heard that there were twenty-four, but I don’t remember for sure. Besides myself, I personally know thirteen of them — certainly a lot. As a child, I did not have friends, not even among my siblings. From as far back as I can remember, I felt different, I was different — and they let me know it. I was chubby, and my hair had a reddish tint. I couldn’t talk plainly, and they laughed at the way I pronounced words. I wanted to belong, but I never did fit in. Then I met the man who would take me away from all of the pain and poverty: Robert Carson, the minister of a small church, who seemed to be everything I wanted in life. In the beginning at least, I think I worshiped him more than I did God. At the time, I did not know much about Christianity, so he had to teach me everything. I went to church, did everything he told me, and tried to act like everyone else.
