    Hi Mr. Wilson, We have finally achieved our goal in getting you to work with us.

    It is by example that we teach and learn. People, especially children, learn by watching and listening to other people. This is why it is important that we, as a people, set a positive example by being polite and compassionate.

    Last year I followed a young American man who rode his bicycle across our country. His name is Paul LeBell and he did BikeFree.org. The mission, which continues as I write, is to raise money for the children of our fallen and wounded troops. The goal is to give these sad kids a new bicycle and to make them happy by the feeling of freedom that riding a bike gives. LeBell rode from Baltimore, Maryland west to Portland, Oregon, then south to San Diego, CA. I believe a total of 5,500 miles. From the web site, bicycles have begun to be given away. The first batch in San Diego and the second in Chicago, with more to come. It makes me feel good to watch the videos on the BikeFree.org web site.

    There is nothing really novel about this act. People do things like this a lot. Some by sailing, by walking, and I read recently by “flatboarding” up the Atlantic.

    What I find unique about LeBell is that he did it. He saved his money, kissed his girl fair well, gave up his apartment, his lucrative day job, and he gave up his side business which he had invested several years and money in. It was, I was told, just beginning to make money.

    I feel that this fine young American offers a positive example for all of us in so many ways. It is a true act of a selfless positive deed. LeBell could be the “poster” man on a bike for the White House’s fight against “obesity.”

    I will post on “Non-Profits” at a later date. There are hundreds of thousands of them in our country. They are “tax-free” 501, 501C, and more. A study done in 2009 finds that the total income for America’s non-profits, excluding churches, was 4 Trillion Dollars U.S. Do we want to balance the budget? Do you agree with the work that many of them do? Do you appreciate the fine salaries that many are paid for sitting behind a desk? Later……

    A note to America’s finest cinematographer; Caleb Deschanel–this would make a great movie if done by you.

    Good morning America! Give Paul a call.
