WE all should Wonder, What Would Youngsters, Like Young Trayvon Martin, and others could/would have become?? This is Today's Inspirational Message for What WE are doing Together, as "T.E.A.M. MATES" One of the most popular children’s toys in the world for the past twenty years has been the Super Soaker water gun, but tragically very few people know that it was an African American who invented it:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Lonnie George Johnson (born October 6, 1949 in Mobile, Alabama) is an American engineer. Johnson invented the Super Soaker water gun, which was the top selling toy in the United States in 1991 and 1992.
In 1989 Johnson formed his own engineering firm and licensed the Super Soaker water gun to Larami Corporation. Two years later the Super Soaker generated over $200 million in retail sales and became the best selling toy in America. Larami Corporation was eventually purchased by Hasbro, the second largest toy manufacturer in the world. Over the years, Super Soaker sales have totaled close to one billion dollars. Johnson reinvested a majority of his earnings from the Super Soaker into research and development for his energy technology companies - "It's who I am, it's what I do." Currently, Johnson holds over 80 patents, with over 20 more pending, and is the author of several publications on spacecraft power systems. Energy technology Two of Johnson’s companies, Excellatron Solid State and Johnson Electro-Mechanical Systems (JEMS), are developing energy technology. Excellatron is introducing thin film batteries, a new generation of rechargeable battery technology. JEMS has developed the Johnson Thermo-Electrochemical Converter System (JTEC), listed by Popular Mechanics as one of the top 10 inventions of 2009. JTEC has potential applications in solar power plants and ocean thermal power generation. It converts thermal energy to electrical energy using a non-steam process which works by pushing hydrogen ions through two membranes, with significant advantages over alternative systems, and is claimed to be highly scalable.
This is a Message for All who seek to do betterment for Human kind, man kind and Humanities. History and heritage is Created, and performed by Many People of Special God-Given Talents, by People of all races, colors, and nations, and WE aspire to do our parts as well.
Many, many "Haters" and "dis-tractors" will go about telling you, or any "Innovator(s)" that you are a "Dreamer", a "koko", "Not Realistic", and many other negative stuff, BUT, IF You believe in Something, and Some Things, YOU/WE must be BOLD, have Courage, and FAITH...Because "IF God, The Heavenly Father be for You, and what He has Given for You to be doing, Nothing and NO One can Stop it, No one can stand against the purpose!"
Think upon Higher Things, and be Blessed!
