Jury Duty

Daily Draw: The Power Deck ~ Individuality

This image contains nine grim old white men, one Native, Greek columns, and an egg. My mind went to jury duty and when I counted the figures, to the Supreme Court.

I'm reminded by this card, how interesting jury duty has been the four times I've served, and how truly our individuality and life experiences come to bear...and yet don't. And it is certainly nothing like anything on TV. Fascinating process.

"A jury too often has at least one member more ready to hang the panel than to hang the defendant." ~  Abraham Lincoln 1809-1865

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
