Crying and Tears

March 31, 2017


Speaking of tears, there have been a number of studies that indicate that women cry more readily than men.

When I was a child living on the streets, homeless or in rat-infested basements, I never recall my mother crying or for that matter any of the other women we knew in similar circumstances.

The men, including my father, cried in frustration, despair and in self-hate for their failures. But never the women, even those who were beaten. They always seemed to shoulder on. Only the loss of a child could bring tears to their eyes.
