In the course of my life I saw three great tragedies, none of which would have occurred without the others: The assassination of John F. Kennedy, the assumption of office of Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam War.
My son Darren believes there’s a Rule of Three in this world. Maybe he’s right. In 1968 we had the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., and the rise of Richard Nixon.
Good things come in threes as well, like my two granddaughters and one grandson. And, for Catholics, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
