The Rights of the Lefts - in honor of Martin Luther King

By Thistle By Thimble

This story is about a kingdom long ago and far away where the right-handed people were in charge: they ate the best food and enjoyed the best jobs and lived in the best houses. The left-handed people, however did not enjoy any of those comforts. No, they lived in the fields and ate while they worked and slept on the ground. But this was how things were, this was how life had been for years and years and though there were some that didn’t agree with this, no one spoke up against the king and queen who ruled them.

And then something remarkable happened. The king and queen had twins and only one of them was right handed. The other was left handed – and now, they were faced with an important decision. And what happens next is not what you would expect.
