"We had almost made it outside when they called out my name and ordered me to stay for questioning. It was around 2 p.m. I was tired, the children were tired and hungry, but I had no choice but to wait to see what they wanted...
They took their time and the last group boarded the bus. The heavy iron door was closing and I noticed a few birds pecking on the dirt in the sun. 'Maybe this is the last time I will see that view, ' I thought as I took in every detail... Everything seemed to be in slow motion as the door was closing and the view was disappearing. The heavy closing door cast a shadow over the view and then the door was shut tight... "
Intertwined among the drama and tragedy you'll share in humor, along with tears, anger, love, kindness of friends, family and complete strangers...
