Kennedy and Lincoln-Strange But True!!!

My mother has had this plaque hanging in her house for years. I remember reading it every so often while I was growing up. I never thought to much about it until the other day. She brings it over and asks me if I remember it. I said "ya sure it has been on that same wall for years". She then asks me if I have ever read it, again I tell her yes, but I don't think to much about it.

She sees that I am very busy with house work and lays it on the counter and tells me when I have the time that maybe I should read it again. I tell her OK and go on with my work. I finally get done with what needed to be done and sit down. I look over and see it just sitting there. I figure I better read it again or she will be angry when she comes back over, she just lives next door.

I have been reading this thing all my life but it never made an impact like it has now. I never realized how different things look to you as you get older. I never noticed how your out look on things can change. Well needless to say it was cool so I have decided to make a blog about it. There are some really neat truths on here. I am going to copy it word for word so I don't mess it up.

I have heard those things before, and I still am so amazed at all the similiarities! Weird!
