Re "2 girls testify in fatal stabbing" (Our Region, Jan. 29): I admired the boldness of the two young girls who testified in the case of the 2010 stabbing. Many in their place would have been afraid of ever speaking about what happened, let alone explain it to a courtroom filled with strangers. If only more people had the vitality that these young girls had. It's a shame that the girls had to witness this horrendous act of violence; however it is amazing that these girls stepped up selflessly to do what was right.
