Carson to speak about US future at Penn's Peak

Published August 05. 2014 04:00PM

Dr. Benjamin Carson Sr. will speak at Penn's Peak at 7 p.m. on Dec. 3.

His topic will be "One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future."

The event is sponsored by the Lehighton 9/12 Project.

Tickets can be purchased at the Penn's Peak Box Office, in person or by phone, for $25 per person.

Carson made headlines with his keynote at the National Prayer Breakfast in February 2013.

Standing just a few feet from President Barack Obama, the neurosurgeon offered a critique of liberal government, calling for a return to our historic culture of personal responsibility, free markets and upward mobility.

The speech instantly went viral and The Wall Street Journal ran an editorial, "Ben Carson for President."

Now, in this sequel to their #1 New York Times bestseller "America the Beautiful," Carson and his wife offer a plan to stop the country's slide into fiscal and moral decay.

Avoiding the political correctness of politicians and the animosity of Washington lawyers, Carson calls for respectful discussion and disagreement, with no subjects off limits.

Applying the problem-solving skills he honed as a surgeon, he takes on tough issues such as education, health care, family values, race relations, taxes, charity, and the role of faith in public life.

In his journey from poverty to the top of his field, Carson has lived the American dream. He shows how we can save that dream for our future generations, by restoring a moral, informed citizenry that will support "one nation, under God, indivisible."
