Because they did not take your spirit

Because they did not take your spirit

I’m amazed at how long Anene was able to stay alive, given the horrific nature of her injuries, and how she was able to cry out for her mother after she was taken to hospital. I like to think that her attackers may have tried to take everything from her, that they may have broken all of her fingers and both of her legs (this is where I like to stop thinking) but they couldn’t take her spirit. They couldn’t break her.
