“A great flood is coming. The waters of the heavens will meet the waters of earth. We build a vessel to survive the storm. We build an Ark.” Noah Noah is the Biblical character who built an gigantic vessel (an Ark) in order to save the animal species of the earth (gathering them two-by-two) from being wiped out as a result of a vast flood. Clearly, Noah represents a traveler with no particular direction or destination but rather has a strong mission and purpose – the preservation of terrestrial life on earth. As a role model, Noah diligently accepted his calling to serve something bigger than himself and never wavered from it.
