Dear Police Officers A and B
Dear Police Officers A and B, . My name is Amy Zi-Xuan Liou, and you two were the police officers who were assigned to investigate my case when I was sexually assaulted six years ago. I was the twenty-year-old young woman who you laughed at behind her back when she told you she said no, but you did not believe her.

38 Thoughts Written In Solitude
I’m not the same person who I used to be; that is both an understatement and overstatement. In what sense? I’m a lot more outgoing than I was merely three years ago, however, I’m less outgoing than I was six years ago. I’m a lot more carefree than I was in high school, but I can’t replicate the way I used to twirl and skip ‘round and ‘round at age five.
