The man with perhaps the most gifted hands on the planet dazzled hundreds with his words at Ashland University, during the annual Ashbrook Memorial Dinner.

World-renowned Dr. Benjamin Carson, who holds more than 60 honorary doctorate degrees, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and even had an award- winning movie made about his life, served as keynote speaker at the prestigious event.

Carson shared with the dozens of attendees about his rise to success and thoughts on how to mend this severed nation.

"The United States of America is one nation," Carson says. "We should not allow ourselves to be fractured by those who try to drive wedges into every crack to create a war and essentially to destroy something that is very good."

Carson mentioned many times during his speech that he is not politically correct, noting several inadequacies in the U.S. government. The New York Times best-selling author believes programs such as Obama-care will inevitably fail and it will be up to America's most educated leaders to help rebuild the country.
