About the Author


Ted E. Johnson is a devoted family man dedicated to his profession of public safety. Ted is a man who thinks deeply about the place that we live. Ted grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, and received his formal education from the University of North Florida. Though Ted grew up during a period of turmoil and racial divide, he was determined to overcome all the odds that were stacked against him. Ted was raised in economic strife, minimum resources, and the absence of positive male role models. However, self-motivation and a desire for a better way of life led him on a path of making productive choices. As a result, Ted became a successful contributing member of society. At a young age, he discovered he possessed a desire to seek answers to questions many people shy away from. His zeal to understand people and the world around him inspired Ted to translate his understanding into a book so that others may see what he sees.
