Mark Twain wrote a kind of autobiography near the end of his life. He instructed that it was not to be released to the public until he had been dead one hundred years, and this year is one hundred years. I have not read all of it. Some, yes, but it is a whopper, too many pages. Twain, in his later years, was not the most optimistic or positive guy to come down the street.
the human race drowned again, and this time drowned for good,
no omissions, no Ark.”
Now, I am not condoning the drowning as I have known a few folks that I felt could use a long dunking. To me the issue with Twain’s statement is that he is assuming he will get to the “other side.” He and we need to be more concerned with getting to the other side rather than making rash statements about another’s arrival. Personally, I can’t swim.
