February 12, 1809: What a day (to be born)!

abraham-lincoln-charles-darwin-200

On this day, 200 years ago, two boys were born, an ocean apart, who would forever alter the course of the world.

Just think about it for a second.  Both the man who (is not nearly as perfect as many politicians like to remember – see: Emancipation Proclamation) paved the way to free (most) slaves in the divided Union and the man who single-handidly turned the scientific community on it’s head (see: natural selection) began their incredible life journeys on this day, back in 1809.

Talk about a day in history…Happy Birthday Abe and Charlie!
