During the October 16 event, Wright discussed her faith and how it has helped her deal with some of the difficult cases that come across her desk. She also noted that although everyone wants to win, that can’t always be the case. Still, those losses provide a voice for the victims and their families with whom she works.

When those victims are children, that role is all the more profound.
