Joseph Herrin of Parablesblog always has interesting articles to read. This one in particular, I think you will very enlightening. It’s about the coming year, 2013, and what it holds for America. It’s titled simply, Thirteen.
Here’s an excerpt:
Looking back over the course of U.S. history I found a foreboding sign of that which is to come. In March of the year 1813 the 13th Congress was seated and continued until March 1815. This is the only other time that America has had a Congress marked by the number 13. That it coincided with a year that ends in the number 13 is equally significant.
What occurred in Washington, D.C. during the time of the 13th Congress foreshadows that which will occur under the rule of the 113th Congress. It was during the 13th Congress, in August 1814, that Washington, D.C. was razed by the British. Both the White House and the Capitol Building were set aflame in an act of wanton destruction.
