Oh wow... this is absolutely heartbreaking and I am sorry, from the bottom of my heart, that you have gone through this.
But Kasie is right, it is very much an eye opener for this... very touchy yet still over looked subject that life today is given. It's so hard for both sides. The pain and suffering of the victim and just the same to those who love them.
This piece here, this piece shows both of those sides to a point where it is like we the readers are peering through a window. This type of dilemma needs to be addressed more with the seriousness it deserves. And what you wrote... it does just that.
