Random Justice

Justice is a flawed concept that ultimately comes down to the decision of 12 people. People with their own experiences, prejudices, feelings about what defines right & wrong.”

— AttorneyΒ Clarence Darrow

If you ever have to go to trial, are you perfectly confident in your life being placed into the hands of 12 strangers whose minds & hearts you know nothing about?

  1. Those 12 flawed jurors? That’s 12 more people that we’ve got trying to be fair than you’ll find in a lot of places. They’re still just 12 humans, but think of where we’d be without them.

  2. Hey Sylver – thanks for keeping us thinking – this one is another reason why we must stay very aware of who we are and what is happening around us! Stay out of court but good to know we always have the power of thought on our side…. : -)

    • Exactly! Keeping our lives in our own hands by way of choosing how we think – what we allow in & what we refuse to entertain. Loving your book, btw. Can’t devour it in one sitting as I’d love to because of school work, so grabbing bits & pieces during nano-seconds of free time. But it’s amazing how effective one sentence can be in changing my outlook on any particular day. After finals, will indulge fully!
