Skateboarding Kabul

January 6, 2011

People live their lives, staying inside themselves, focused on family and friends, all the stuff that stops traffic and raises blood pressure.  I’m someone who gets caught up in the rush of each day until the sunshine hits me just right or I find out about a program like  Skateistan in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Like so many people, I think skateboarding is this transformative thing.  I almost feel like I’ve come some great distance on my “magic rolling board.”  The truth is that when I watched the video below, it made me want to live a better life, help people more and never take my life or my skateboard for granted.
