    It's been almost a year since Tracy Morgan and his close friend James McNair were in involved in a car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. Unfortunately, McNair was killed in the crash. And Tracy suffered multiple injuries (including being in a coma initially for 2 weeks). He has spent the last year recovering, both psychically and emotionally.

    After having a good amount of time to settle a lawsuit that involved Walmart and the driver (that was speeding and caused the crash), Tracy felt he was finally ready to come back in the public arena to explain where he is at with everything now, and to pay tribute to James, who he says was his mentor.

    Pretty rough interview to watch. But if you have ever been a fan of Tracy Morgan, I think this is a very good interview to watch, to understand the guy from a more human standpoint, and to also see just how long lasting something like a fatal car crash can be, on all the people involved:

    That was really hard to watch. It's great to see how far he's come and it looks like he's well on his way to recovery, but it was really hard to see someone who has made me laugh for so many years in the condition he is in.

    That was heartbreaking. Even though I've never really enjoyed Tracy Morgan as an entertainer, he does seem like a really good person and it's terrible that this has happened. He has come a long way and I'm hoping for a full recovery.

    I wasn't a huge fan of his until 30 Rock came around. I loved that show and his character on it. I hope to see him on screen again, but I wouldn't be surprised if he calls it quits after this tragedy.

    I wouldn't hold him to it, because of course he has been through a lot. But he did say this in his interview, which leads everyone to think he'll be back at some point:

    "Right now, my goal is just to heal and to get better because I am not 100% yet, I’m not," Morgan said in the Monday morning interview with Matt Lauer. "And when I’m there, you’ll know it, I’ll get back to making you laugh, I promise you."

    I sure hope he comes back! I have loved him since his days on SNL. It was tough watching him become so emotional during that interview. Seeing someone who has made you laugh for so many years in that light is upsetting.
