interesting

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 their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

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.

Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.'
Kennedy was shot in a car called a 'Lincoln' made by Ford.

Booth ran from the theater and was caught in a warehouse.
Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theater.

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.

Creepy, huh?
 
got this from a friend in an email....i had heard of some aspects of Lincoln & Kennedy to be similar, but not this many.
 
o yes, i forgot to tell you this   i decided not to take the job at the church   if i did i would have been there 6days a week   5days a week just to get my hours in i needed, plus one niight  a week for my practitioner class   that's way too much   at my current job i can get those work hours in 2 days   nope too much at the church   and my therapist said so also    i also resigned as the church's hiking coordinator   well not only did he change my hours on saturdays where i couldn't do it, i also realized that even if we changed one saturday a month to the 2-10pm shift that would make for a very long day for me    it would be hiking 3-4hrs in the morn, then going to work for 8-9hr shift   way too much for me   so eventually i''ll be working for the church in another capacity volunterrily most likely   it's all good.....in the meantime this morn, i'm still laughin from last nite   but tonite i'll have that beer or wine in lieu of the milk i decided last nite   i was dreaming of waiting on customers this morn as i woke-ugh   and i was in some foreign country while doin it   go figure....
