And your extensive experience of the world is...?
I've worked in crime investigation since leaving university five years ago. My wife is a detective sergeant in our county police service. I'm sitting at home alone tonight, because my missus is out on a case and I'm trying to occupy my mind, rather than worrying myself sick about whether or not she'll be home in one piece tonight.
Between us, and the cases we have worked on, I kinda figure that any child-like innocence we may have had at one time has been pretty much wiped out by hard gained experience.
Now, isn't it past your bed time...?
I dated a cop for a while. I really liked the guy, maybe could have loved him but I couldn't handle what you just described. No one who hasn't been there can imagine that. I have never felt so helpless in my life. I miss him sometimes but I know I wouldn't have lasted as a cop's wife. I wish you the best of luck.
I also think your point is a valid one and pertinent. There are many people trying to tear down the safety and security of the free world.(US,UK Israel)claiming there is something better out there. Rule of law is so precious and people just don't realize it.
