The cross was part of a Roman execution method called crucifixtion. It was possibly the most horrible way to die in history, as people hung there until they're lungs collaspsed in and they suffocated. it was literally torture. now the cross, which used to be a horrific symbol, has been turned into a symbol of love and kindness. this is because jesus died for you.
