They took my phone, but I prayed

Originally appeared online in the teen series Your Healings -  November 8, 2022.

One day after school, I went to the library to prepare for a test we had the next day. What I didn’t realize was that there was some sort of curfew in our neighborhood. 

I stayed at the library until it closed at 8:30 p.m. When I started walking home, I noticed that there were very few people out on the street. Everything was quiet. 

Soon, three police officers came toward me. They stopped me and asked for my ID card, which I didn’t have on me. I told them I was a student and that I was coming from the library. It was obvious that the officers were drunk.
