Freedom gives us the ability to fight fair but whose got the extra energy to fight yet another an-other’s fight?

Watching fair competition between participants from many nations, on the Wimbledon juicy green tennis courts, energizes faith and hope – and , calms my instinct to scream “it’s not a fair election”  when Iran dryly admits “poll irregularities.”   Do ya’ think?

Squelching Iranian voters voices with soldiers and guns on the streets that run red with blood. is unbalanced.  I can follow Wimbledon balanced statistics.  Iranian record keeping is shifty – illogical.   If you have more votes than people voting there must be a botch. 

A Wimbledon “botch” is an upset due to a stumble or emotional jitters.  At this trying time, it’s great to have Wimbledon for a few weeks.  It’s honest and logical competition – a war of professional athlete against professional athlete –  to watch and turn to for calm.  In the streets of Iran we see naive, untrained for war, competitors.  I watch and rage at news reports of how desperately Iranian’s struggle.

Although, Iranian freedom is not our fight  since as a nation we’ve been there – done that – we can emphasize and sympathize and wish there were only jitters creating this upset.

With the stock market sliding, thirteen killed in Baghdad and two in Afghanistan just before our troops withdraw from Iraq, housing prices lowering and sharp job loss increases reported again, just managing to maintain personal freedom is a chore.  Whose got the energy to take on another battle?
