I can't stop thinking about Rosie, the Elephant in Water for Elephants. I just finished reading the part about the cruelty to her because of her accidentally hurting Marlena. Rosie apparently responds well to love and kindness and goes a little crazy over cruelty. She also seems to be passive-aggressive.
Rosie is no different from any of us. Most of us respond well to kindness and love and resist and resent hostility and cruely.
