Esta semana me han dicho que "nunca había tenido interés por estar en compañía de mis hijas".
Lo cierto es que nunca he tenido interés en NO es estar en compañía de mis hijas.
Seven hundred human beings were driven from their homes in one day and set adrift on the world, to gratify the caprice of one who, before God and man, probably deserved less consideration than the last and least of them... The horrid scenes I then witnessed, I must remember all my life long.
The wailing of women – the screams, the terror, the consternation of children – the speechless agony of honest industrious men – wrung tears of grief from all who saw them. I saw officers and men of a large police force, who were obliged to attend on the occasion, cry like children at beholding the cruel sufferings of the very people whom they would be obliged to butcher had they offered the least resistance.
The landed proprietors in a circle all around – and for many miles in every direction – warned their tenantry, with threats of their direct vengeance, against the humanity of extending to any of them the hospitality of a single night's shelter... and in little more than three years, nearly a fourth of them lay quietly in their graves.
