David Ellis played by the rules. He worked hard, started a family, and set out on a straight and narrow path towards his own version of the American dream. But darker forces were at work to sabotage that dream. People within his own company were determined, because of jealousy and racism, to see him fail. He was accused without proof, fired without reason, and maligned without cause. Destroy a man's livelihood and you take away his ability to support his family. Without family, you take away his life. This is the story of one man's fight for truth, justice, and the American dream. Growing up in the inner city with a strong mother and an absent father, David eventually went to work for The Company, one of the largest rapid transit systems in the United States, serving millions of people in multiple states. For fourteen years, he worked his way up from custodian to 1st class painter, with never a black mark on his record, but when the powers that be within The Company began to resent the life he'd built for his family, steps were taken to destroy that life and show him just who was boss. This is the story of how one man went up against a giant employer, and with the help of his faith and his family, came through the fire with his soul intact.David fought Goliath, and won.
