We Can Create World Peace
My name is Ryan Clauson. I am a community organizer, reverend, comedian, volunteer and I grew up in Hanover, NH. I just moved back and spend my days walking and riding my bike around town talking to residents to get a feel for how people are doing. These are the patterns I noticed:
-People feel the community is weaker. Many don’t know their neighbors anymore, and it seems everyone is just so busy with their own lives, there is no sense of belonging. Even kids are so scheduled, you rarely see them playing in town. With the invention of the internet, people stopped talking to each other as much, stopped getting together as much, and our connection to each other has been lost. The town and the college have drifted apart, less people go to the sporting events, and there is a huge income gap.
I want to improve the community. I want to make Hanover the best town it can be and work with all surrounding towns to do the same.
I believe world peace is possible and my life is devoted to making it happen. I want to start with my hometown.
I have recently been given 2 acres of land and a large office building in Hanover from my parents who built it in 1977. I am converting it into the best possible most comfortable place for people to be. A refuge for all. I envision a building that has free food, coffee, tea, very comfortable seating, fire place, event space for music, comedy, lectures, a meditation room, napping room, library, doctors office, massage, acupuncture, chiropractor, an art room, a game room, a garden, green house, jungle gym, and lots of musical instruments for people to play in a music room. Everything will be free and donation based.
The building will be called what it has always been called by my family, “The Office.” It will be where the most important work gets done. Love, connection, peace, joy, freedom, creation.
I am currently and will always be open to all suggestions from the community for what else we can do. Most of my ideas that I am moving forward with have come from community members so if you have an idea of how to make this town better, healthier, or more fun, please contact me and let me know. If you want to work with me at the office doing something that you love that will benefit others, please contact me.
And lastly, we meet on Sundays at 3:33pm. Please stop by and say hello. I would love to meet you.
Love and peace,
Rev. Ryan W. Clauson
