As you know, we have been following Tracy Morgan’s recovery journey from the initial time of his crash in 2014 until now. In the beginning, we encouraged the drivers of big rigs to exercise caution on the open roads. Next, we highlighted how Morgan’s accident served to influence increased safety measures on the roadways. Along with the rest of the world, we rejoiced when he was spotted behind the wheel for the first time after his accident. Now, we ask you to join us in applauding Tracy Morgan’s return to comedy.
In the fall of 2015, Tracy Morgan first announced his comeback comedy tour, “Picking Up the Pieces.” The tour is now ongoing, with dates continuing through May of 2016.
It’s Morgan’s first standup trek since the New Jersey Turnpike crash that left him critically injured with broken ribs, a broken leg, a broken nose and severe head trauma that resulted in him being in a coma for two weeks (Toronto Sun).
Although the crash and recovery are not the only topics he covers during his routine, they do provide a large portion of his material.
Although these haven’t been pleasant realities to contemplate, we believe these posts serve as an important reminder to keep your head up, eyes up, and minds engaged while you’re on the road, on the job site or in the mine. It’s our hope that the future sees far fewer tragedies such as this one, and we ask you to join us in wishing Tracy Morgan the best of luck in the rest of his career and continued recovery.
