David Schied was born in Montana and raised in Oklahoma and Texas. After high school, he went on to realize his “American Dream” to be in Hollywood movies, to author two books, and to live in Japan. (His books – now out of print – were entitled, “Streetwise: An Introduction to Self-Defense”; and “SAFE AT LAST! A Complete Manual to Home and Personal Security”.) He graduated cum laude with two BA degrees from the University of Southern California. He went on to earn his Master’s degree in Education at the University of Michigan. Since 2012, he has been working on his Ph.D in Education. He is also co-founder of the Sherman Institute (www.shermaninstitute.com).
A lifetime learner, David holds seven black belts in three styles of martial arts. He has a long history of “fighting” for victims’ rights, civil rights, and Constitutional rights. He is also one of three Michigan “delegates” elected to attend the historical Continental Congress in 2009.
“Courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit” are the tenants defining my life in early adulthood. Biblical principles now govern my mid-life ambitions as an advocate for family values, healthy lifestyles, and the rights of American citizens to be free of government oppression, political hypocrisy, and media propaganda. I believe in “equality for all”, with a special focus on the “underprivileged”, those who stand up against tyranny, and we who value Love and Justice. I pledge to do my best, in duty to God, to the citizens of the U.S., and to my family.” Email; firstname.lastname@example.org (in Michigan)
