Everything rolls . . .

In an hour, I will be rolling down Rt. 178 with my son to Borders at the Annapolis Mall to pick up a copy of Tom Peter's The Project 50 for a friend of mine. It's about a 15 minute, no risk run.

At that same hour, someone else's son or daughter will be rolling down whatever the freeway through Baghdad is called to deliver the opportunity of freedom to people he has never met. It is a high risk run.

We have the freedom to read. We have the freedom to vote. We have the freedom to live free.

To many, the way to freedom involves extending themselves in order to extend that freedom to those who are not free.

Because someone's son or daughter is rolling into Baghdad today, someone else will have the opportunity to roll to the shopping center with his son or daughter to pick up a book for a friend, to have a Coke, eat some Boardwalk fries (or whatever they call them there) at no risk, someday soon. He won't be hauled away for reading the wrong book, or saying the wrong thing, or having the wrong friends, or voting the wrong way, or thinking the wrong thoughts, or going to the wrong church.

Because someone's son or daughter is rolling into Baghdad today, I can write this, and you can read this. Because someone's son or daughter is farther from home, someone else is closer to being free - and on a lot of levels, in a lot of ways, when that unknown someone over there is becoming free, we are staying free over here - and someone, somewhere, has hope that their son or daughter can be free someday, too.

Everything rolls.
