So, What Then?

Daily Draw: Ananda Tarot ~ Justice

I've struggled with the Justice card here 70 times already. What does it really mean? I get the concept of a pedophile being slowly crushed by a refrigerator. I get the concept of a murderer being tied to an ant hill. But somebody has to do the tying and dropping, what does that do to their mind and heart?

I'm reminded by this card Justice should be found in a court of law, but seldom is. By the time the trial or consecutive trials are over the family of both sides have been run through the shredder, where is the Justice in that? Hell is just a boogieman under the bed, no such thing. So, what then?

"No man suffers injustice without learning, vaguely but surely, what justice is."  ~ Isaac Rosenfeld 1918-1986

  1. I was chosen as a juror for a death penalty trial, but I could not do it. I told the judge (during voir dire) I had no problem leaving someone in jail forever, but I did not feel comfortable being the executioner. It always seems like an easy choice when you're just talking about it, but when the decision is in your hands, it changes everything.

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
