When people are down, they need to be helped / picked up; not kicked further downwards! Why kick someone when they are already on the ground; be it physical or emotional! One interesting concept about courageous fighters and resilient folks when they are down is that they have the intestinal fortitude to eventually rise up! They may also have “not so fond” memories of your kicking foot! Remember … payback is not always kind! It will feel no different than the kick that you gave them … or worse!
