der Bayerische September/October 2020 - 3

TheSteeringColumn
We live in tumultuous times. Racial conflict, social
and political upheaval, financial swoons, the
coronavirus, the country and the economy in
lockdown... I thought I had lived long enough to
have already seen everything. I was wrong.
Yet I'm hopeful. I'm hopeful that our society
has finally reached a tipping point. I'm hopeful that
the distressing events of our recent past are
becoming the catalysts for meaningful change.
I'm hopeful that the current of these events, and our
reactions to them, will carry us towards molding a
better society. After all, don't we all fundamentally
want the same things: the chance to do meaningful
work, to raise healthy and happy families, to
give and receive love and camaraderie, to find

enjoyment and fulfillment in life? And don't we all
expect to be treated equally under the law, with
respect and dignity, without regard to race, color,
creed, or gender?
So, where does our club fit into all of this?
The National Capital Chapter of BMW CCA is a
welcoming and inclusive community. If you have
an appreciation for things automotive, you are
welcome here. If you enjoy driving, you are
welcome here. If you enjoy motorsports, you are
welcome here. If you enjoy socializing with fellow
car enthusiasts, you are welcome here. If you want
to share what you've learned with the next
generation of drivers, you are welcome here.
If you want to pitch in and lend a helping hand at

an event, you are welcome here. Regardless of
what automotive make conveys you (or none at all),
you are welcome here. You are the life blood of our
organization. We want you, we need you, and we
welcome you.
A final thought: rather than telling other
people how they should change, be the change you
want to see in the world.
Thank you for allowing me to share.

Jack Raymond
