Two more births to celebrate…

If you are a follower of horoscopes, what insight can you shed on two men who were born on the same day – only hours apart, but both having had a huge historical impact on mankind, but in different ways?

Last night, at the newly renovated Ford Theatre in Washington, D.C., President Obama took to the stage, whose lights had been darkened since the assasination of President Lincoln, and spoke these words about the 16th leader of these UNITED states, “Despite all that divided us -- North and South, black and white -- he had an unyielding belief that we were, at heart, one nation, and one people.”

And, at the same time, Google had chosen Charles Darwin, the father of “evolution” to best express the importance of the day.

Two men separated only by hours, both remembered for their 200th birthdates. Both sending messages to this generation that we are all different but yet the same.

As Commander Spock, of the original Star Trek of the 60’s would say, “Fascinating.”

Indeed it is.

I couldn't give a horoscope exlanation, but synchronistic... sure feels like it.
