Don't confuse kindness with weakness

You are reading http://livinginthehood.blogspot.com

I've heard that phrase twice today. First, in "Bounty," and now in some silly Hallie Barry movie.

It struck me. I remembered it. I paid attention to it.

I know people do that with me.

I'm generaly a well-mannered person. I first noticed this confusion in people while I was living in the war zone.

Anyway, I noticed it.

I'm sure I do it, too: confuse kindness with weakness.

But it's an interesting expression, I think.

I certainly know better than to confuse cruelty with strength!

I find bullies to be cowards.
