This is an article found in a newspaper and I thought it was rather interesting so I am sharing it with the readers of FaithWriters.
This is about two of America's most tragic episodes and their uncanny similarities.
The assassinations of Abraham Lincoln and John F Kennedy. Lincoln was elected to congress in 1847. Kennedy was elected to congress in 1947.
Lincoln became president in 1860. Kennedy in 1960.
Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy. President Kennedy's secretary's name was Lincoln.
Lincoln was shot in the head in the presence of his wife on a Friday. Kennedy was shot in the head in the presence of his wife on a Friday.
John Wilkes Booth had 15 letters in his name. Lee Harvey Oswald had 15 letters in his name.
Both Lincoln and Kennedy lost a son while in office.
Lincoln's secretary advised him not to go to the theater the fateful night he was shot. Kennedy's secretary had a fearful premonition and asked him not to go to Dallas.
And the final coincidence, the man who succeeded Lincoln in office was Andrew Johnson. Kennedy's successor was Lyndon Johnson.
