Dig my new tattoo, why Jim Thorpe? His achievements as an athlete & a Native American deserve tribute. His achievements in college, the 1912 olympics, & professional sports, require the moniker “The Worlds Greatest Athlete” awarded by the king of Sweden. Thorpe achieved all these medals & accolades as the Native American barely attained citizenship. His life also reminds me that life is not easy especially as a Native & my tattoo serves as an everyday reminder that greatness can still be achieved regardless of circumstance.
