Traumafessions :: Reader Trey on Abraham Lincoln

Congrats on a frighteningly good site; brings back all sorts of creepy memories.

Just thought I’d share a particularly scary childhood memory of my own. I know he’s revered as probably the greatest leader in our nation’s history– but I still remember being terrified at age five of this picture my Kindergarten teacher had of Abraham Lincoln. She hung it right off the front edge of her desk so it was right at eye level when we sat on the rug… and four score and seven years later, it still creeps me out!

Let’s face it, the beard sans mustache look is really creepy. Always has been, always will be…

That’s OK, I was afraid that my dad was the reincarnation of John Wilkes Booth.  The resemblance was uncanny.
