And you know...just as the memories and pain and trauma that she had encountered were starting to heal, the trial for her father and grandfather began. We at OBV were afraid she wouldn't be able to psychologically handle the pressure, or the memories being dragged out again. We all had a meeting with Pink Lotus the night before the trial to reassure her that we, along with her grandmother, would be there by her side. That she could still have a bright future, have all her dreams come true, and one day have a big family.
On that day, the law would find justice for Pink Lotus.
One that day, Pink Lotus would regain just a smidgen of her dignity.
OBV thanks Ms. Diem Phuong, our in-house lawyer for her never ending support to OBV and of course, to our little Pink Lotus.
