Can I?

"When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly." 1 Peter 2:23

only by God's grace. Much more so if it involved a loved one being 'hit' w/ such an attack.

I'm not a "turn the other cheek" kind o guy by nature. I'm more of a "turn your cheek" w/ my foot.

That illustrates the difference between Christ, God incarnate, and us mortals.

I would have retaliated, or maybe just cried and screamed.

Not my Lord. He did not retaliate.

That's tough. No retaliation, but remember, even He followed through at times with righteous anger and teaching; sometimes, that's what is required.
