I am sure some of you were victims to physical abuse at home, by a Dad, a husband, or maybe even an older brother. We all know someone who has been a victim of this horrible behavior, insecure and weak men who use their power over others who are smaller than them. This is the very definition of coward. These people disgust me.

In a commencement speech at Carnegie Mellon, Tepper broke down and revealed his Father was abusive. I don’t know much about Tepper, other than his CNBC spots and incredibly record of charitable donations. But for a second here, you can peer into his soul. He’s a good man.

    One of the worst things about abuse, is that it spreads like a virus: many victims of abuse become abusers. Also, abuse isn’t always physical and it isn’t always comitted by the physically stronger person.

    Lastly, while this is the definition of coward, what we need is more bravery:
    “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

    More Melania, less Donald (some rebuke Melania for picking anti-bullying while being married to the BUlly-in-Chief. However, I wonder if she picked this stance as a protest against his behavior).
