While we mainly hear about the perpetrators, the story of the victims is rarely heard.

The crimes often have a big impact on people's lives, but telling those stories can help with the healing and also provide a warning to others.

We'd like to hear your stories of how a crime affected your life. Did it change how you lived, or how you see other people?
