Gifted Hands

I hope you enjoyed our all school read, Gifted Hands. The story describes Ben Carson's journey from a struggling student to an extraordinary neurosurgeon. Gifted Hands elaborates on the different experiences of Dr. Carson's life and the obstacles he overcame.

For our first blog post, I want to know what part of Gifted Hands you found most interesting. Please describe it and explain what you learned from that part of the story. 

Whenever you write on the blog, be sure to use complete sentences with good punctuation, capitalization, and spelling. This blog post will require at least two or three sentences to be complete and answer both parts of the question. This assignment is due Friday, August 16th. Happy blogging!
