This book is inspired by the true story of my life and journey from homelessness and beyond. It’s an inspiring story of courage, tragedy, adventure, perseverance, determination, resilience, faith, and redemption. The story is about my life in the beginning, growing up, surviving the fire incident, and early demise of my three sisters. Life without my father, fear of my mother, and life in the navy. I suffered thirty years from low self-esteem, fear, anger, resentments, worthlessness, loneliness, hopelessness, homelessness, substance abuse, failed attempts to maintain employment, mental institutions, churches, shelters, jails, bad relationships, and marriages too! I walked in the kingdom of darkness (Hell) for thirty years determined to find myself; I finally made a final decision to get my life on track once and for all! One day, I evaluated my entire life as far as I could remember. I began to peel off the layers of my unresolved issues like a banana. I confronted the tragic death of my three sisters, which I honestly haven’t done before, for closure purposes. I confronted the anger and resentments I harbored toward my mother for her failures, including my father for abandoning me. I was angry with myself for my history of substance abuse and homelessness, also for not reaching out for help in the beginning when I should have done so. I completed an intense, detailed evaluation of my life one day. I began to cry until I was all cried out. I had enough faith to pray to God at the time. I asked God to renew in me a new heart and spirit to serve him. To be the man that he intended me to be. After I finished praying, I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. This was my defining moment and the turning point of my life. I began to see light at the end of the tunnel! I began to seek treatment for my depression and PTSD. I attended (NA) meetings. I began to read and apply the word of God in my life daily. The wounds of my past miraculously began to heal. Over a period of time, my wife noticed an internal transformation taking place in my life! I began to forgive everyone who done me wrong, including my worst enemy of all, myself! Today, I live a life of purpose, not defeat, drug free and living one day at a time. I was compelled to write my life and journey from homelessness and beyond in hopes that my story may convey to anyone who may be struggling with their personal giants, especially the homeless; there is hope!!! You can make it. I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to have gotten the help I needed. There are good people in the world. I’m a veteran who enlisted and was honorably discharged from both, the US Navy from 1986 to 1991, and the Army reserve from 1992 to 2000. Today, I currently serve as an enlisted soldier in the Army of the Lord!

African American historian Gerald Early refers to Jack Johnson (1878-1946), the first African American heavyweight champion of the world, as "the first African American pop culture icon." Johnson is a seminal and iconic figure in the history of race and sport in America. This manuscript is the translation of a memoir by Johnson that was published in French, has never before been translated, and is virtually unknown. Originally published as a series of articles in 1911 and then in revised form as a book in 1914, it covers Johnson's colorful life and battles, both inside and outside the ring, up until and including his famous defeat of Jim Jeffries in Reno, on July 4, 1910. In addition to providing information about Johnson's life, it is a fascinating exercise in self-mythologizing that provides substantial insights into how Johnson perceived himself and wished to be perceived by others. Johnson's personal voice comes through clearly-brash, clever, theatrical, and invariably charming. The memoir makes it easy to see how and why Johnson served as an important role model for Muhammad Ali and why so many have compared the two.

Born during the Great Depression in rura Alabama, his family moved to the Southwest when he was six months old. He describes his life journey over the next 70 years, which was strongly influenced by the great societal and technological changes of that period. Most of his life choices were driven by a need to suceed. His strong independence and leadership qualities were identified early. From high-school dropout and military service to Ph.D. in physics validated his drive. Being a young paratroper, living in Africa in the 1960's, and long motorcycle trips added a bit of excitement. Long hours working and leading high-technology programs in California afforded many opportunities for scientific and technical contributions and led to extensive travel, much of it foreign, which he describes in some detail. Here is a man who is tough, fair, out-spoken, and a whole lot of fun. I saw him as a handsome, charming man, who found love and family. Children and grandchildren enriched his life. He had many trials and tribulations, and he faced them all squarely. You might say, like Zorba, he experienced the full catasrophe. Roberta Claire, a friend

DID I (WE) DO ENOUGH? MY LIFE AND RACE RELATIONS by John Trimmer John Morris Trimmer was no stranger of seeing a people of different color as he mingled with different races when lived in China with his family as a young boy before the Second World War. His family was a part of foreign missionaries serving the poor in China, his father being a doctor. He wasn't aware either of the racial discrimination happening in America, until his family went back home and he began attending schools. From then on, he became a witness to many accounts showing racial prejudice against the blacks in school and other institution of learning, in the military, at work, in the community, in the church, and in many other social and political grounds. In the 1960s, he is one the staunchest supporters of civil rights acts, and has been an active participant in many public demonstrations. His decades of meaningful friendship with blacks and his efforts to break the barrier between the whites and the blacks resulted in a collection of stories that is both inspiring and heartbreaking. As he gathers back the memories of racial inequities he has seen firsthand, he ponders over what is really wrong in American society today and tries to answer the riddle of not only the gap between two races but also the widening gap between the rich and the poor. About the Author John Morris Trimmer was born to American missionaries in Nanjing, China, where he lived for fifteen years. He received his bachelor's degree from Swarthmore College and his master's from the University of Florida; he also recieved his Doctor's from the Western Colorado University. He is now a college professor emeritus and currently lives in Florida with his wife, Guiying Ling.
