Abraham & Mary Todd Lincoln: Constancy in the face of Dualistic Decimation

The dichotomy of differences between the personal lives of Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, made them not only appear truly odd together as a couple, it must additionally be stated neither was the other’s first choice for a romantic partner.

Much like their opposing backgrounds, History has placed nearly every one of President Lincoln’s deeds through a predominantly positive lens, while dualistically the vast majority of his wife’s actions have been put through a filter that’s as unattractive as it is thoroughly negative.

The most recent addition to the list of mass shooting horrors not only includes a new geographic location and backdrop setting, it surpasses the rest by instilling a different dimension of blind hatred as its motive, making it the worst case of mass murder by a lone gunman in America’s History to date.

What makes this unspeakable event record-breaking is Orlando’s killings expand beyond the common mass shooting themes of “terrorism” and/or “mental instability” as its motive for occurring. With the slaughter of so many innocent lives taking place at a gay night club, Orlando’s tragedy escalates it to record heights by virtue of the mind numbing event being both the worst case of mass shooting in American history as well as the most notorious example in modern memory of a hate crime being perpetrated by an individual towards a particular minority group.
