    It depends. Sometimes being "kind" can be bad for the person. That's what tough love is. Sometimes to be good to the person you have to say "No." And some things are wrong, and they're always wrong. It would be cruel to be "kind" if that "kindness" meant condoning something that hurt or damaged others.

    "The question is moot" - (Old SNL skit w/Jessie Jackson) - But kindness cannot be wrong, so there's really no choice involved...(Tell me I'm right!!) lol
