We often ask eachother what makes our job worth some of the things we go through to solve a murder. Every now and again, people get united, or reunited at times. Once you see a little bit of happiness in somone's eyes, or at the very least a sense of peace after knowing the truth about their missing loved one, it becomes known why I do this job. Mostly though, I don't have to wait that long for a reason to get up in the morning. All I have to do is is look at my collegue and I know why I do this job. Its not just because I get to work next to a beautiful woman everyday. That's just an added bonus. Her smile reminds me that for every murdering, thieving, raping arsehole in the world, there are a dozen or more people who just want to live and love in peace. There are people out there with hopes and dreams. People like her whom I swore to protect. In my heart and in my mind, I swore to protect her more than anyone.
