Today is the 152nd “anniversary” of the day that Lincoln was shot. On April 14, 1865 it was also Good Friday, the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. Those anniversaries coincide this  year.

Lincoln died on April 15.

Lincoln and I don’t have much in common, but there is no famous person whose life – and death – stirs me as Lincoln’s does.

Rest in peace, Abe.
