MANCHESTER, NH – So heartening, I had to share this  here.

Take 12 minutes and 15 seconds to stop what you’re doing and listen to this NHPR story told by New Hampshire playwright and wordsmith Sean Hurley.

It’s an unexpected tale, almost too perfect to be true:

Below a half moon on a snowbound night high on a hill in the town of Littleton New Hampshire,  an large man with an overturned bucket of tangled hair stepped into the lobby of the Hampton Inn.  

“From Mankind to Saint Mick: Mick Foley’s Journey From Wrestling Cage To Santa’s Village” will touch you, whether you know much about the world of professional wrestling or one of its true characters, Mick “Mankind” Foley, or whether you simply acknowledge the capacity of the human heart, and its purest truth: The human spirit  is subject to evolve when we allow life to move us in an improbable directions.

    Peace?

    “Aren’t humans amazing? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then plead for ‘Peace on Earth.'” C. David Coates

    The good news is that anyone can break this cycle of violence. I did and you can too. Each of us has the power to choose compassion. Peace really does begin in the kitchen.
