    I thought this would be good to post as it puts a face on what we went thru as a people, and for those that are younger than I that has not seen these images, but was only told about them.

    In the movie, there is a 14yr old boy hanging from a bridge because Yt refused to pay him after working for him all day. So since his mother was hungry, he stole to feed here and they hung them both. Her on one side, and him on the other.

    Peace!
