Excerpt
Servie walked into the police station in Zimbabwe. 
“I am the mother of Thembelani,” she whispered.
They quietly escorted her to a room and told her to have a seat. 
The door opened and an officer walked in and sat down in the chair across the table from Servie. He looked directly at her and quietly spoke.
“We have the two men,” he said. “Tell us what to do with them.”
The laws were obscure and justice was ambiguous. They were looking to her for direction. She raised her eyes and met the officer’s gaze. Spoke what was in her heart.
“Let them go,” she said. “Putting them in jail will not bring my son back.”
The officer nodded his head. “You’re sure?”
“Yes,” she answered, “but I want to talk to them.”
Minutes later the door swung open and a man was shoved into the chair across from Servie. He was the ringleader. 
Silence filled the room. Nobody dared to make a sound. The air was thick with a stale odor of sweat and fear. Servie had rehearsed this in her mind. She willed her voice to speak.
“Why?” she said. She could feel a wave of emotion rising up in her throat. “Why …?”
The man kept his head down. He couldn’t look at her. A true coward. Finally, he muttered a response.
“I’m sorry,” he simply said. 
Servie felt a cold tear escape from the corner of her eye. It traveled down her hot cheek then found a path over her chin and down her neck. She didn’t bother to wipe it away. Just let it fall. A cold, wet symbol of the sorrow and the turmoil building in her chest.
Servie stood up. Her legs were shaking so hard they nearly collapsed. She steadied herself then slowly grabbed her purse and walked out. Never looking back.
She would leave behind the anger. Leave it sitting there in that cold, hard chair across from that murderer. The anger would not bring her son back. But it would destroy her. She knew it would. She could already feel its hot, angry fingers trying to strangle her heart.
God knew she would grieve. Oh, how she would grieve. But this day Servie made a choice that felt right for her. Servie chose to walk. Servie chose to save her soul.
