# Truth, and spirituality. # The left hand, and side was considered, and called The sinister Side, by religion. During the churches good old Witch Hunting Days, parents of left-handed children lived in fear. Thus started the practice of forcing children be right handed no matter what! # 75 years ago, the practice of making children use their right hands in school continued. I know! For I did the first 3 years of my schooling, with my left hand tied behind my back! Religious superstition is a deadly thing!
