Monumental Middle Child Mistreatment

     Experts say that Middle Children learn at a young age how to mediate as we often find ourselves literally in the middle of sibling turf wars. So it should come as no surprise that the President who presided over the biggest family feud this country has ever seen was a Middle Child. Abraham Lincoln was the second of three children -- the purest form of Middle Child there is. Lincoln had an older sister, Sarah, and a younger brother, Thomas.
     Also not surprising for a Middle Child, his birthday is largely forgotten! Just a handful of states still remember Lincoln’s birthday! (It’s today, February 12.) Only Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and New York acknowledge it as a legal holiday. New Jersey used to, but in 2008 they pulled the plug on Lincoln's birthday as a public holiday. Worse yet -- the state he was born in doesn't even officially acknowledge the day. Shame on you, Kentucky!
