Author, And Founder 2013 Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education (Pace)

Society was a community like I’d never seen it—inflamed, boundless, and unyielding, PTN Founder Terence Morris’s, African-American racial heritage. Born to a Black mother and Black father, both with African-American roots, he said people were often timorous when encountering his African-American family.

“Constantly, while in my youth, people assumed that when I was with my mother and/or my father that our family was still an extended family.” Morris said. “It’s a strange feeling when people around you are speaking bad thoughts “in first person,” to you, about your own mom or dad. All in all, I think the experiences I had growing up helped make me more attuned to different intelligences and defined why and how I would volunteer to help other people.”

Terence Morris, a native Tulsan, has been an advocate for social change “Empowering people to help people in PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION (Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education) for nearly 8 years.” It all started when he was actually hit in a protected and marked pedestrian crosswalk intersection in Tulsa, OK.

“I have been employed in a capacity as an advocate for social change for over 20 years before my pedestrian crosswalk accident,” Morris said. “I was granted several academic and professional scholarships to college.” Morris has led meritoriously in current political and social rhetoric with his numerous PTN 21’ Articles and Short Stories. In 2014, The Oklahoma Department of Labor, guaranteed him training at Tulsa Community College, through The Manufacturing Standards Skills Council, which is certified by several professional manufacturing boards and agencies. 

The purpose of the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council Certified Production Technician (CPT) program in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is to recognize through certification individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of manufacturing production at the front-line (entry-level through front-line supervisor) through successful completion of the certification assessments. 

The goal of the CPT certification program is to raise the level of performance of production workers both to assist the individuals in finding higher-wage jobs and to help employers ensure their workforce increases the company’s productivity and competitiveness. 

In an effort to stimulate interest in Public Transportation Policy, especially road and surface construction projects, Morris has designed some online resources that are publicly available as learner modules for pedestrian safety advocates.  

PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION “think-resource” assists “Modularity Theorist’s” in identifying “Health Conscious Community” activities, and in practicing “specificity-survey” analysis daily.  PACE TULSA NETWORK’S 2021 “Engaged Participant’s” together, unite “space security” and “public safety,” thereby “bridging equity barriers.”  

It takes a well-established and thought-out “learning system” to approach “enrichment adaptations” in communities “historically resistant to change.” Better “transportation public policies” can be enforced once “factors” contributing to “systemic knowledge bankruptcy” can be minimized or removed.  

Our mission is seeking social advocate accreditation. This valuable foundation, PACE TULSA NETWORK provides better “Modular Invocation” while hosting a Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment. (Moodle)

In observance of November 29, 2021, “Zero Tolerance Day:  Help End Pedestrian Accidents. Injuries and Fatalities,” Morris reflected on his experiences growing up, “I whole-heatedly believe the opportunities of mercy that abound us are created within the ‘spirit of benevolence.’”–Terence Morris, Author & Founder, PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION 2021.

Terence Morris has achieved success outside of community leadership through his participation in volunteer activities and the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, Volunteers of America, The Mental Health Association and PACE TULSA AGS FOUNDATION. He also volunteered to canvas during former Mayor Kathy Taylor’s campaign and served as a peer mentor in several core counseling activities such as The Care: Drug and Alcohol Accident Victim’s Panel; and forums in Marriage & Divorce Counseling; Discrimination: Racism, Sexism & Wage Discrimination; and Excessive Online Video-Gaming Disorder’s. As you act, listen, and grow with the PTN mission you will realize the powerful emphasis placed on “enrichment adaptations.”

In the 1970s, extended families were still very uncommon, in Morris’s family his Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles played a major role in his upbringing. All of those relatives were living with their own children. Of course, the Morris Extended Family had a sense of spirituality, so his grandparents raised him in the church and in church schools.  They always responded to their obligations with urgency.  His Grandparents taught him to take things seriously as a child.  They would pay their bills on time and make sure things were kept up around the house where they lived.  

The possible bigotry Morris might face was shielded from his childhood for the most part, however, there were definitely times when he says, “He was assaulted and harassed as a young man by white people physically. Like the time some white boys threw a tennis ball out of the back of their pick-up truck and hit him dead in the center of his forehead.  They shouted “nigger” and drove away really fast.  Morris was shocked because he had just finished putting his lemonade stand away in his aunt’s garage.  He was headed to the convenience store to buy some sweets.

“My dad worried that I’d face the same kind of racism over-and-over, that he had faced growing up in the segregated Midwest,” Morris said. “His father’s concerns encouraged me to accept responsibility for my own life. I always felt a sense of obligation for the world and the environment around my community.”

“My dreams were always huge. I was a member of the band, was elected student council president twice, became number 1 in Speech and Debate, and graduated with scholarships for academic successes.” After high school, Morris won the National Cross Examination Debate Championships, and earned Recognition from The United States Veterans of Foreign Wars for his work with Domestic Policy Research.  

The Oklahoma Department of Education in 2015 granted Terence Morris a scholarship to attend OSHA 10 Construction Zone and Workplace Safety Training at the Lemley Campus of Tulsa Technology Center. Terence went on to learn CPR, AED, FIRST AID, and WORK ZONE FLAGGER at Goodwill Career Academy. 

Morris is proud to continue in his family’s long history of service in the Tulsa OK Community. One of his ancestors was a Tulsa Police Law Enforcement Officer for the City of Tulsa Government. Another relative worked as a Nobel Peace Prize Reporter in France. Since 2013, Terence has been online helping to caudal a Pedestrian Awareness Crosswalk Education curriculum, for an online listener base of over 90,000 AGS specificity-survey participants’. 

Morris says, “Learning as a part of self-constitution means practicing by giving.  Reaching out as a giver and volunteering our time to giving activities is important and expected. 

Every single one of us at some point has to look outside of ourselves and embrace the idea: A giving attitude extends outside of us. 

Developing genuine self-economy clearly makes sense. 

Developing your driving passion for wanting great causes to succeed is normal. 

Although a child may grow up in an Extended Family Situation, the people who find life’s challenges rewarding will have lasting memories which are meaningful and good.

Morris, is an AUTHOR for pacetulsa.wordpress.com.  He writes SEO material for other social media sites.  He is seated intellectually, in MSSC, the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council. He is Nationally Certified Silver Level, American Career Readiness Institute. Also, in 2014-2015, He was awarded Principle Merit Scholarships from the Oklahoma Department of Labor, as well as, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.  

Morris, “Wants all of you to know that he has been educated and trained to recognize people with character, sincerity, merit and integrity. Moreover, he wants you to realize that he has reasonable expectations for his community leaders.”

On occasion, Morris has seen the ugliness of racism firsthand. Advancing civil progress in Tulsa, Oklahoma’s community is not possible while domestic terrorists, trained murderers, prolific killers, and systemized hate cells, freely conduct urban warfare on African-American Black People in our communities.  

The concerns about peril and eradication of African-American Black People stems from a lack of trust. Current and past experiences with policing organizations continue to signal turmoil as relationships have not mended.  Organizations and their leaders are continuously placated with the fears of obfuscated failure due to the aims of other organizations and militant companies. 

The amount of African-American blood shed on Tulsa, Oklahoma soil and nationally is primarily due to increased disease.  However, much of the civil unrest is due largely to excessive grants of power in the use of lethal deadly force given to law enforcement agencies in the United States by the Supreme Court.

Alternately, poverty and financial crimes amongst the African-American communities significantly impacted by race ethics, is disproportionately low in comparison to Caucasian and “other” dominant majority groups. But to the extent that African-American Black People are more significantly impacted by poverty the burden is detrimental.

Referencing statistical measurements means “police-targeting” of African-Americans is disproportionately low, when it comes to violent assault and crimes involving weapons in Tulsa, OK and for much of the United States. Sometimes it seems that too many African-American’s dying at the hands of Law Enforcement makes the perception pejorative rationale.  

As an Author for PACE TULSA NETWORK, I work to improve negative community perceptions related to crosswalk intersection education.  Militancy variates propose strategic steps positioning ideological superiority, despite efforts by African-American Black leaders to quell dissention and violence on their jobs. 

Not to say, “Success at Work,” is not possible, but the excessive grant of power to law enforcement agencies in Tulsa, Oklahoma, only minimizes acknowledged auspices of Workplace Discrimination training efforts to resolve Racism, Sexism & Wage Retaliation while employed.  

Are there enough “good leaders” in Tulsa, Oklahoma? And If not, what are you doing to make those changes happen for your community? 

I remember meeting Elizabeth on Friday, January 20, 2017, at around 1:00 p.m. Elizabeth is a visually impaired blind woman who has two-lifetime challenges. 

The first challenge is that she is blind. 

The second, Elizabeth, is homeless.  

Elizabeth says, “I fell in a pot-hole on 27th & Harvard. I wish Tulsa could do more to help the blind and homeless people prevent accidents.” Although Elizabeth faces challenges every day she remains optimistic about the future of Tulsa, OK, a community where she lives. 

WHAT IS AN AWARE PEDESTRIAN? An Aware Pedestrian” is someone who identifies with being part of an emerging crosswalk education health conscious community, and who’s actions contribute to developing this community’s constitution; government; and organizational economy through participation and practice.
