MAN WITHOUT A FACE
Here is a true story by Paul
Harvey. .... You will be surprised who this young man turns out
to be. (Do not look at the bottom of this letter until you have read
Years ago a hardworking
man took his family from New York State to Australia to take advantage of a
work opportunity there. Part of this man's family was a handsome young son
who had aspirations of joining the circus as a trapeze artist or an
actor. This young fellow, biding his time
until a circus job or even one
as a stagehand came along, worked at the local shipyards which bordered on
the worse section of town.
Walking home from work
one evening this young man was attacked by five thugs who wanted to rob
him. Instead of just giving up his money the young fellow
resisted. However they bested him easily and proceeded to beat him to a
mashed his face with their boots, and kicked and beat his body
brutally with clubs, leaving him for dead.
When the police happened to
find him lying in the road they assumed he was dead and called for the
Morgue Wagon. On the way to the morgue a policeman heard him gasp for air,
and they immediately took him to the emergency unit at the
hospital. When he was placed on a gurney a nurse remarked to her
horror, that this young man no longer had a face. Each eye socket was
smashed, his skull, legs, and arms fractured, his nose literally hanging
from his face, all his teeth were gone, and his jaw was almost completely
torn from his skull.
Although his life was spared, he
spent over a year in the hospital. When he finally left, his body may
have healed but his face was disgusting to look at. He was no longer the
handsome youth that everyone admired.
When the young
man started to look for work again he was turned down by everyone just on
account of the way he looked. One potential employer suggested to him
that he join the freak show at the circus as The Man Who Had No Face.
And he did this for a while. He was still rejected by everyone and no
one wanted to be seen in his company. He had thoughts of suicide. This
went on for five years.
One day he passed a church
and sought some solace there. Entering the church he encountered a priest
who had seen him sobbing while kneeling in a pew. The priest took
pity on him and took him to the rectory where they talked at length.
The priest, through his personal contacts was able to
secure the services of the best plastic surgeon in Australia. There
would be no cost to the young man, as the doctor was the priest's best
friend. The doctor ... was so impressed by the young man. Whose
outlook now on life, even though he
had experienced the worst, was filled
with good humor and love. The surgery was a miraculous success. All
the best dental work was also done for him. ....
was ... blessed with a wonderful, beautiful wife, many children, and
success in an industry which would have been the furthest thing from his
mind as a career, if not for the goodness of God and the love of the people
for him. This he acknowledges
The young man. Mel Gibson. His life
was the inspiration for his production of the movie "The Man Without A
Face." He is to be admired by all of us as a God
fearing man, a political conservative, and an example to all as a true man
