During his Senate confirmation hearing, Dr. Ben Carson, secretary of Housing and Urban Development–designate, told a story from his childhood. He said his mother used to work cleaning beautiful homes. One day she asked him if he would rather live in those nice houses or the house in which he and his brother lived in Detroit. She told him that only he could decide the type of home he would eventually live in by how much he studied in school and the choices he made for his life.
