The Dead Are The Only Lucky Ones Among Us

“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.” - Mark Twain

I was dead when ancient Rome ruled "the World", i continued in death (non-existence) when the Middle Ages raged, I was still dead when Queen Elizabeth fought off the Spanish Armada, I remained dead during the American revolution, and the counter revolution known as the "Civil War". I was dead when Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley were assassinated. I was dead throughout the world wars. I was not alive during the Great Depression, or the post-war prosperity and "I Like Ike" era. I didn't suffer lose or worry, want or fear. discouragement or anxiety. Man, I miss the good old days!
