Witness

Rally for Daisy

Witness

Your hand clenched her arm
and exposed your desperation.
You held her from behind;
you closed your eyes and bowed your head.
You brought her here
to this small town where girls are raped,
where justice is impotent.

A friend from high school was photographed with her daughter in the Kansas City Star recently. They attended the Justice for Daisy Rally – a rally for victims of sexual abuse in Maryville, Missouri last month. Cortney Cooper was praying over her daughter…that she would never know such pain.

One thought on “Witness

  1. I know so many women who have been raped. They have told me their stories. My heart and prayers go out to the victims, their families and all women who have endured such vicious brutality. ~ Dennis
