Do you call this Coincidence?

Certain things in life defy all forms of logic and scientific explanation. Infact, these issues take us closer to thinking about God or the Divine Supreme, rather than many other things on earth. One of such wonderful writings about coincidence is here (a reality as well):

Coincidence between the lives of Abraham Lincoln & John F Kennedy

1. Lincoln became the President of the United States in 1860, and Kennedy took over as President in 1960 – exactly 100 years gap.

2. Both of them took lot of interest in the rights and liberties of Negro / Blacks.

3. Both of them were assassinated during their Presidency

4. Both were assassinated on a Friday

5. Both of them had their wives along with them, while they were killed

6. Both got hit by bullets in the back of the head, and that was the prime cause of death

7. Both of them begot children while they were living in the White House.

8. Unfortunately and again coincidentally, both of them lost their kids immediately on birth, as well.

9. Lincoln got killed in Ford Theatre, while Kennedy got killed in a car called “Lincoln”, which was a Ford product

10. Both of them were succeeded by a President in the name of Johnson (Andrew Johnson was one, Linton Johnson was another)

11. The successors also were born with an exact gap of 100 years – Andrew was 1808 born, while Linton was 1908 born

12. The assassinators of Lincoln and Kennedy also had the same gap of 100 years between their birth years. John Wilkes Booth was born in 1839, while Lee Harvey Oswald was born in 1939

13. Both the assassinators were from Southern States of the US

14. Both the killers were shot dead before the cases could be filed against them

15. Booth killed Lincoln in a theatre, and ran off to a garage. Oswald killed Kennedy in a garage and ran off to a theatre.

16. The total number of letters in the names of Lincoln and Kennedy is equal – 7

17. The total number of letters in the names of their successors (Andrew Johnson and Linton Johnson) is equal – 13

18. The total number of letters in the names of their killers (John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald) is equal – 15

19. The first name of Lincoln’s secretary is John. And the last name of Kennedy’s secretary is Lincoln!

20. Finally, when Lincoln applied for the Presidency for the first ever time, he had recommended a person named “John Kennedy” to be the Vice President.
