It sounds to me like Carrie should one day consider working as a victim's advocate: she is very brave, determined, intelligent, well spoken and meticulous in her record keeping. She has already done so much, by coming forward and standing up for what she knows is right, and fighting against what she knows is wrong. I was sexually assaulted in my early twenties and I was one of the 95 percent who had such little faith in the local constabulary that I never reported the crime. I have always hoped that my inaction did not cause other women to be harmed...
