Anthony Bourdain….RIP

Here’s a guy who could be a real hard case.

Here’s a guy who softened while being treated kindly by people who, moments before, had been strangers.

That was the impression I had of Anthony Bourdain.

When you watch any of his shows, see if you can see the appreciation of kindness he radiates when eating in a “strange and foreign land”.

He was a real ambassador.

He was a missionary of a different kind.

He was an emissary.

And….he is gone after his suicide in his Paris hotel room.

What a sad thing all of that is.

We need more Americans like this one.

Maybe the world would like us more if we could all make a good connection like Anthony Bourdain seemed to make when he sat down to eat with a stranger?
