I don't like this story because even the most harsh hearted person would not kill two innocent little children for no reason.This story just makes me sad and angry

My mother died when I was 15 mo old. I was sent to live with an aunt and uncle who had no children. We aunt was my dad\'s sister. She did not like my father and she liked me even less. This was back in 1944. To this day I remember her singing this song to me. It scared me! The uncle was a dictator but he favored me and she hated me for it.
