Back from Jury Duty
I am so happy to be back in the studio creating portraits of shelter pets after taking two weeks off to fulfill my civic duty as a juror serving on 2 Circuit Court trials.
This was my first time serving jury duty and I have to admit I was not looking forward to it based on all the stories I have heard. That said, I was pleasantly surprised to find the process very efficient and respective. If I am being completely honest, I actually enjoyed the process and learning by participating in our judicial system.
I developed a deep and profound respect for all the people who tirelessly serve within it - police officers, public defenders, prosecutors, social workers, nurses, first responders, clerks and judges.
I also left with a feeling of gratitude for the all advantages I am fortunate to have received throughout my life; specifically, my loving family and supportive friends who believe in me. They have taught, and continue to teach, me to believe in myself. I didn’t realize what a gift that really is until I came to understand the stories of so many others.
My recommendation to you is if you are asked to serve, serve with an open mind. You won't regret it.
It is a small thing, but I help better our community by photographing shelter animals in the hope of helping them find a forever home. Last week, I photographed 14 animals. One of my favorites was Mary Lou. She is a warm and loving cat that just loved to pose.
