Interestingly, it seems that quote we attributed to Mark Twain may not have been a Mark Twain quote after all, but one from Robert Jones Burdette. Here it is:

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.”

Does it feel like the world is kicking you in the gut? With all the shootings, protests, arrests and racism, how did we get here?
