KATPILOT Posted June 20, 2013 Report Share Posted June 20, 2013 I suppose I am not sure where to post this so I am starting a new thread. getting to know Kathy, I recognized what great values of judgement she had which over the years I began to learn to be the same. I used to be quite judgemental and tended to believe what was first told to me. Kathy on the other hand always listened first and then questioned what other factors might be involved. She would say "does that really sound logical?" when hearing a news story. She wondered what else might be going on. (the untold story). She listened, read, and learned all she could before believing something to be true. I always thought she would have been a great juror. Sadly, she only became a US citizen the year before she died, so she never experienced it. Now I am faced with being on a jury. It would be my first time if I were to be selected. I wanted to do it because I felt I had learned from her to listen carefully and not rush to judgement. The trouble is I am not sure if I am emotionally compromised. I still am so sad many days. I still keep thinking about it several times a day while I am working. I postponed my summons before because I just couldn't deal with it, but there is no excuse for grieving on the form they send. So I am going to report this morning and I know I will be honest. I have to let them know somehow that I am still going through a very sad time. I'm not under a doctors care nor taking medication but I just don't know. We find ourselves sometimes facing situations that a grieving person may or may not be able to do. This is the first one for me. I voted okay, I travel well, I do so many things non grievers do, but this.........can effect someone elses life. I have been thinking about this for a few weeks now and asked advice from friends. I believe it should be the courts decision whether I should be there or not. Personally, If I were an attorney, I wouldn't pick me. Stephen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
