Outrage and grief

Re: First Word: An attack of conscience, April 7-13

Thank you for your powerful and so eloquently written editorial to the men who assaulted the young woman on March 25. Thank you for expressing what I know most men and woman are feeling about this rape, that the terrorizing of women is an inexplicable crime committed by the weakest and most deplorable of men.

I work at the university and drive past the Cedar Hill intersections every weekday. There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not feeling the outrage and grief of what those four men inflicted on that poor woman. I keep hoping, as you have so aptly penned, that one or more of them are feeling a life-leeching remorse and guilt and will step forward. Surely all of them can’t be psychopaths? And I ask them, what are you feeling when you look into the eyes of your female friends, sisters, mothers and even daughters. How can you possibly carry this heinous burden? I can only hope that this act will eat you alive.

Heather Keenan, Victoria
