Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts: King’s ‘Other America’ message resonates anew

 

By Joe Pitts

Mayor of Clarksville

City of ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – Around Monday’s national holiday celebrating the birth of Martin Luther King Jr., we pause to reflect on the life and legacy of the civil rights leader. He had a special insight and clarity, and many of the words he spoke more than six decades ago still inspire us today. 

Many are familiar with King’s “I Have A Dream” speech, but I’d like to talk about a lesser-known speech that strikes me as highly relevant in January 2021.

Dodging the Roadkill: Reckless

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’m sure at one time or another, we’ve ALL done something reckless.  That’s how it is when you’re young and immortal.  As you grow older though, you become a bit wiser, not to mention you understand, “I’m too old to so something this stupid.”

I went on a group ride over the weekend and there were seven of us.  A couple of Harley’s a couple of Gold Wings and a couple of sport bikes.  “Crotch rockets” as some like to call them.

The sport bikes were guys I had never met.  Good guys, but it was our first time riding together.  The plan was to get out for a few hours while it was still the cool of the morning, and be done before the heat settled in.

Dodging the Roadkill: Always Lurking

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Since my accident last November, I’ve had the opportunity to hear from many of you about YOUR near death experiences on a motorcycle.  Your stories have been extraordinary.

Many of you had far worse injuries than I did, and yet here you are, able to “tell the tale.”  They’re memories you would just as soon forget, but hearing them gives me chills, and reminds me of “that” moment when I hit the deer.

I replay it over and over.  I will NEVER forget the sound of my Harley striking that beast. 

A deer crossing the road.

Dodging the Roadkill: Nobody Knows Diversity Like A Biker

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – These are crazy times we’re living in, to say the least.  It’s an election year, there’s a deadly virus among us, and unrest in the streets.

The country is in a state of confusion and misinformation, yet still has the time to argue with every Tom, Dick and Harry on the planet.  We’ve taken disagreement to another level.

One thing I think we can all agree on though is that Bikers understand diversity and embrace it with love and respect.  You don’t have to explain to a biker what it means to respect one another.  We come in all colors, sizes and lifestyles.
