What's your favorite number? Mine is number three. I am the third of three sons, I own condo number 3, I lived on the third floor of my university dorm in room 303, do you get the idea?

This morning, then again tonight at 9 a.m. and p.m., 19 minutes, 19 seconds on 9-19-19, it will be the Palindrome: a word, phrase, number, or another sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction. This will not occur again for decades, so I promise to never mention it again.

This Palindrome is a sequence of characters which reads the same backward as forward, such as the number 10801.

A good example "Amor, Roma", Composing literature in palindromes is an example of constrained writing. The word “palindrome” was coined from the Greek roots Palin “again” and dromos “way, direction” by the English writer Ben Jonson in the 17th century.

Number 19 is an extraordinary number. In ancient times, it was known as the 'Number of Surrender'. It is the prime number that means it is only divisible by itself and number 1. Seeing the number 19 now and then carries an important message.

I am a free man, nobody's slave; but I make myself everybody's slave in order to win as many people as possible.
