This is an autobiography of one of the greatest minds in the 21 st century, described by Ebony Magazine as a genius. Dr. Thomas is one of the four inventors and innovators of fiber optics technology in the United States with 7 patents awarded in six years that supported and extended the global reach of the Internet through ultra high strength submarine cables that connect different continents and countries. His innovation brought fiber optics cost to the same level as copper leading to the replacement of copper cables with the more efficient fiber optics media with higher bandwidth. This media supports a more robust broadband transmission of pictures, data, video, making social media on the internet possible. Over a billion people use the Internet everyday, because of fiber optics. His creativity has also led to the conception and creation of 21 st century enviromentally friendly Amusement Parks; The World Success Park that includes the first African American and Latino Theme Parks. These parks will showcase the heritage and success of people of all races bringing respect and peace everywhere in this century and beyond.
