Oh my, Larry, this is such a sad scenario and I can feel the heavy responsibility on your shoulders. It's not an easy situation to be in, knowing whatever good you might say may not make any sense to the victim. And you are a man, which I think makes it more difficult talking to a rape victim, as surely she cannot trust your kind! But in reading this, I see a soul sincere in helping the poor girl out, although you are quite unsure, but your good intentions are clear. A very touching write Larry and hats off to you for your awesome job!
Incredibly powerful, moving, heartbreaking poem. Thank you for being so honest about your experience and internal struggle as a prosecutor with a sound conscience. Your job is as important as the psychologist who will help her heal. If you are more likely to catch the rapist, you are more likely to save another potential victim from the same pain. You are saving lives by prosecuting bad guys. There IS healing for this young female if she knows she's helped keep others from the same hurt.

Larry, I have to say this write is outstanding, I know people who have been through this, how it changes them, how utterly devastating it is and how it not only affects them but others around them, how relationships are never the same.
