American Poet Biking Across the Nation to Provoke a Shift from the Pain of the Past to Greatness for All Americans

“It is time to move beyond the injustices of yesterday to the greatness of tomorrow.” — William Owens

LAS VEGAS, NV, October 20,2017 | TruthPR.com | — William Owens, Poet and Author of 13 books, is rallying Las Vegas city pastors and the local “Church” body to lead the charge for a Shift to Greatness Throughout America.

William Owens, Jr., is about to undertake a massive personal journey to stir the conscience of Americans back to greatness.

It’s called The Shift to Greatness Bike Trek.

The bike trek will depart from in front of Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas following
the Press Conference on Tuesday, November 7, 2017.  Details are as follows:

DATE: 11/7/17
WHERE: Memorial Garden for the Fallen

Others To Be Announced

Bicycling between 50 and 75 miles per day, Owens will cross the western U.S. along the Southern Route stopping at colleges, churches, and events where he has been hosted as well as talking with complete strangers about greatness.

Owens’ goal is to cause people to recognize that we must shift from the pain of the past to the promise of greatness for all Americans. Through Forgiveness empowered by God’s grace we can heal and experience a full and abundant life for ourselves and being a catalyst for others.

Owens begins the first phase of his trek this month starting November 7th  from Las Vegas and ends it over 300 miles later, in Phoenix, Arizona on around November 12 at the first Shift to Greatness Rally.

“The Shift to Greatness theme core message is to move beyond the pain of the past,” Owens said. “For some African-Americans it has been slavery, racial injustice, inequality. For other groups it has been similar and specific issues. This bike trek represents all Americans having an ugly past and recognizing that none of us are without fault or the need to be forgiven and to forgive.”

Owens said, “My mission is to create a deep desire within the hearts of people to pursue the greatness that God has placed within them and to allow that hope to inspire them to want the same for others.

About the Author:

William Owens is currently launching a national bike trek called, Shift to Greatness – A Biblical Transition from the Pain of the Past to the Promise of Greatness for All Americans. Starting the fall of 2017, William Owens, Jr. will ride his bike approximately 50-100 miles in various cities throughout America to a pre-determined meeting location in which he will speak on the need to “Shift” from the old narrative of group politic to individual greatness by which our society is enriched.
