Will 2019 continue the trend? The other day I was talking with a close friend, and he pointed out to me that all throughout history years that end in 9 have tended to be times of great change and upheaval. I was intrigued by what he shared with me, and so I went out and did some research, and I discovered that he was right on target. In particular, over the last 100 years we have seen an unusual number of key historical events take place during years that end in 9, and that seems quite strange. Could it be possible that the ending of one decade and the imminent start of a new one somehow triggers something inside of us psychologically? I don’t know, but there does seem to be a pattern. In this article I will summarize some of the things that I have discovered, and I will let you come to your own conclusions.
