There have been a lot of horrific events happening to people throughout history, most of which tend to lead to a lot of death and sadness for everyone involved. Unfortunately, a lot of these massacres and genocides have been led by only one single person, which is usually a dictator, general, or just a horrible leader overall. In all, a lot of innocent, good people were cut down in the prime of their lives for one man or woman’s end goal in government.
