If she can't handle how bad the world is at her age then she might as well put a remaining bullet in her head cause she won't make it. Sure there is kindness left, barely. But her childishness got Lee killed and her kidnapped by some strange man who could have had something a lot worse on his mind than making her his daughter. And what is the point of being determined to fight on if you don't even know how to fight or able to make the choices needed to keep fighting? Nope, my Clem won't be anybody's sucker again. my Clem would put a bullet in any a-hole out to get her and she would have the fortitude to end the life of someone she cares for than watch them lose everything about themselves.
