Paul McDonald - Ontario Provincial Police (5)

I will never forget that day, exhausted and terrified, when I finally built up enough courage after keeping a secret for a long time, to place that call for help to Haliburton County OPP to let them know I was a victim. I wasn't sure if anyone would listen to or believe me. I am forever grateful that I spoke with Sergeant Paul McDonald. I never met this soul before, but because of you I feel that I was finally listened to and believed. Sergeant Paul McDonald is a really great listener, supportive and kind. Because of your professional and courteous manner, I feel a sense of relief and security for the first time since this incident. I want to let you know how much you are appreciated. Words are not enough to express my deepest gratitude for your dedication and professionalism. I will never forget when you said to me "You sound tired" and I responded "I'm fine." Thank you for noticing I wasn't. It is comforting to know there is someone like you who will listen. Because of you, I am able to fall asleep at night feeling a sense of security. Thank you for all the sacrifices you make everyday. You are my hero.
