Wow...gripping reality! Such a tough decision faced by your MC. The hymn, toward the end of your entry, is a favorite of mine.
Excellent interior monologue. Absolutely gripping piece, and perfect hymn to go with the story.
Grace and Mercy.... How we all need it, and need to give it. This shows a struggle because of our limited knowledge and understanding. Written so well to do that.
Very thought provoking piece. Some innocents go to jail - some guilty go free- terribe dilemma. Lord save me from ever being on a jury.

Great story. Thanks
Great story and take on topic and also a wonderful reminder of God's grace and mercy to us...which none of us deserve.
That's a beautiful hymn, and I'm glad you used it here. I've often thought it would be an awesome responsibility, to be on a jury in a murder trial. I think there would be some residual guilt, no matter what the decision, and you captured the conflicting emotions very well. Good job!
