Lincoln and Kennedy were as
everybody knows, two of the most popular Presidents that America
has ever seen. Both being civil rights campaigners. But, could
they have been two different men with the very same soul, leading
their country forth in two very different eras?
The coincidences between
these men and their lives are very obvious and quite spooky when
collated together. Some of them very small and others seem to be
so giant its a wonder they haven't been front page news!
It all began when in 1846
Lincoln was elected. Strangely, Kennedy was elected 100 years
later nearly to the same day and to the same position. Both men
when assassinated were killed by men with 15 letters in their
name, being .. John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald. Small but
certainly significant considering that when both Presidents had
been assassinated they were succeeded by two men with the surname
Johnson who each had 13 letters in their name!!
Lincoln and Kennedy both
went through the enormous tragedy of loosing a child whilst in the
position of President. All these things seem maybe coincidental
but the list really does get deeper and more evolved. For instance
Both Assassins were in their twenties and both were shot before
their trial dates.
well over 100 years ago
Lincoln had a secretary named John Kennedy and more recently
Kennedy had a secretary called Miss Lincoln!! Coincidence - I
think not!! History certainly seems to be repeating itself. But is
it the same soul finding refuge in what it knows or simply no more
They do continue however
with things like, on a Friday booth shot Lincoln in the back of
the head at the Ford Theatre and ran to a warehouse. Oswald, also
on a Friday shot Kennedy also in the back of the head in a Ford
car from a warehouse and ran hide in a theatre.
The most surprising coincidence'
of all is that both men on the day they were shot each said that
if someone was to try to kill them that day there would be nothing
they could do to prevent it.
Is it the same soul living
on through time? Does this happen to us all but is unrecognizable
to us? I am sure we will never know but it makes for interesting
reading and thought. I leave it up to each individual to decide.
Maybe fate dealt a hand in
these tragic men's lives. Lets hope that the cycle however is
broken as we don't want to go through another assassination
