. . . he'd save us all, but I'm pretty sure he only ended up saving himself. Don't get me wrong; he wasn't selfish. He would have taken any of us---or all of us---with him if we'd wanted badly enough to go. I'm sure he would have waited for us, tutored us, trained us, or whatever it took. He wasn't, however, going to stay here and "wallow in the mire," as it were. We could have gone with him; he would have taken us, but we all opted out. I don't know that for sure. Everyone I know or was aware of opted out. I can't say that some folks I never knew of didn't go, but it's weird how it happened. He was there; he was available; we could have gone with him---and we knew it, but we didn't. I wonder how many of him there are. Does everyone get to meet someone capable of lifting them up and out? Is everyone given a "get out of jail free" card and at least one chance to use it?
