Donna R. Gore is co-author of two books in the Grief Diaries anthology
Invited to write the foreword for Surviving Loss by Homicide, Donna Gore introduces readers to the sorrow experienced when losing a loved one suddenly to violent crime. She describes to readers the reality of being a victim, as well as the importance of care, kindness, compassion, and resiliency.
In Victim Impact Statements, Donna compares, contrasts, and teaches others the differences involved in presenting a victim impact statement at sentencing, during a plea bargain, and later at a possible parole hearing.
“Filled with answers to poignant questions, each writer shares insight into the process of coping with a violent tragedy, and play a vital role in surrounding readers with warmth and comfort as they seek understanding and healing in the aftermath of their own loss.”
“The victim impact statement is an indispensable tool that helps hold the offender accountable for the consequences of a crime. It gives the judge the rest of the story, the part that doesn’t appear in police reports or courtroom evidence, and connects pieces of information to emotions in a way people can relate to.”
