Senior Intern #10

April 8, 2017 was the hardest day for me as an intern. The National Crime Victims Right week started off with the staff from the District Attorney’s office greeting family members of homicide victims as they arrived at the event. What I didn’t realize is that after hearing their stories, it was going to change the way I see the world forever. I cried hearing mothers talking about how their children were killed, and what they have been through to cope and move on with their lives. As an intern, I was so thankful to have been given that opportunity to just listen and give hugs to these family members and just letting them know we are just a phone call away if they need to talk. I just pray the family members find comfort in God’s love.  Below is a link about the event.
