To a lot of people in America, the number 13 means bad luck. Of course, if you are superstitious, aka totally ignorant, you can find a lot of things to blame for bad luck. Like a broken mirror brings 7 years of bad luck. Seven years! That is a long time to suffer for just a broken piece of glass!
Today is Friday the Thirteenth. Next month we will have another Friday the Thirteenth and in November there is a third one. This year is loaded up with them! That’s a lot of bad luck for a year that is supposed to be full of hope with the promise of change by a certain important someone.
