My duty to tell the truth the whole truth

c/o Justice for Families

I was surprised to be greeted by an envelope from a London Court a couple of weeks ago inviting me to fulfil my obligation as a registered voter.
I have very strong views on our duty as members of the British public and take our responsibility to ensure justice is delivered in the fairest possible way.

I will admit that I was excited to play my part (even more excited by the opportunity to not go to work for a week).

It was two weeks of meeting some great individuals, the other juror.  Two weeks absorbing more information than possible.  Listening to information and  understanding a way of life I am not a part of.

Two weeks of developing a renewed admiration for people who work for our public service, those who ensure justice is served, who ensure we are kept healthy and well and safe.

There are a lot of people doing a lot of very good things for a lot of people who don't necessarily understand it.  I was one of those people.

I hope that if I learn one thing from the whole process it will be to appreciate the services and fairness given to those in the UK along with the people who deliver it.

*Just as an aside, I didn't serve on a family case, it was just the picture I liked the most from google!
