Have a history teacher explain this if they can.
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.AND……………….:
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 saw this had to share just in case anyone did not know.

Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but look how it turned out. Your past does not define you. It is what you decide to be that does.
I’m the one who taught my kids that right? Must reapply it to myself now, more than ever.

Back when I was a medical student in probably 1998, I saw the first surgical procedure of many on a little boy who was born without an ear to surgically create an ear for him. During this first component of the procedure, the plastic surgeon made an incision in the boy’s chest and removed a rib. For the next few hours, the surgeon whittled the rib into a few pieces, bent the rib, and stitched the rib pieces together in such a way to mimic the appearance of the cartilage inside your ear. He then made an incision in the boy’s skin where his ear should have been and put the “ear” under the skin and sewed it up. The next probably 6 surgeries were to gradually stitch the skin in such a way that makes the “rib-bone ear” look like a normal ear. I was floored. It was one of the few moments in my life where I wanted to be a surgeon. This guy was a sculptor. A true artist. And this little boy would have a new “ear.” Super, super inspiring.
And now we have 3D printers to replace the archaic, but artistic rib bone to ear procedure. Amazing. Progress.
