      MAN WITHOUT A FACE -
      WHO IS HE?
       
          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 it fully)
          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 pulp. They
      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. ....
          He 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 who cared
      for him. This he acknowledges publicly.
          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 of courage.
