The Cruelest Month

In his poem, The Wasteland  T.S. Eliot said, "April is the cruelest month." 
Not to depress, but was he onto something...? 

Some history of April: 
  1. MLK Jr. and Lincoln were assassinated 
  2. Kurt Cobain committed suicide 
  3. The Titanic sank 
  4. Chernobyl 
  5. The San Franscisco Earthquake 
  6. Columbine
  7. Waco
  8. OK City Bombing
  9. VA Tech massacre
  10. BP Oil spill  
-And some statistics about April: 
  1. The Highest number of suicides
  2. Most wars begin 
Now I personally feel as though February is the cruelest month (freezing cold, valentines day, the friggen groundhog might see his shadow) But, I guess the facts don't lie

April is the cruelest month
