Have a history teacher explain this if they can.
This was shared with me on Facebook this morning and blew my mind…
Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.
Now it gets really weird.
Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln.
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.
Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.
Now hang on to your seat.
Lincoln was shot at the theater named “Ford.”
Kennedy was shot in a car called “Lincoln” made by “Ford.”
Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.
And here’s the kicker.
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.
Lincoln was shot in a theater and the assassin ran to a warehouse…
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the assassin ran to a theater…
I firmly believe that we are not always living an honest life. With the dawn of twitter, FB and Instagram we can create a perfect world online for all our “friends” to see and it bares no relation to whats happening in our real lives. I see so many Tweets about how so and so is rocking their day and killing some f*cking sick design (I have no idea what any of that sentence means but you get the gist) or where they’ve just landed the most awesome client ever and everything is perfect. Then they take a picture of there Eames chair and their 700” iMac and they wonder why they generate no empathy from anyone. I am as guilty of this as anybody. Please can we all be humans with all the foibles and idiosyncrasies that make us so complicated and unique and not vilify people when they show some rare and wonderful human vulnerability.
