It's been a busy week and hard to find the time to write my blog or even to follow other ones, but a few posts have blown through the clutter in my life and mind and grabbed my attention.
Jayne has written a series over the past week re-counting her experience the week before on a jury in a child maltreatment case. She did a very good job of explaining the case and the deliberations and it gives us all a little window into the mind of a juror.
My work is primarily in cases where there has been abuse or neglect of a child and I write obliquely about it from time to time in this space but Jayne's artful handling of the trial and the interest shown by her commenters made me think that I should start sharing more of my work. All of my cases are highly confidential but with care certain aspects and principles can be shared.
Another post that woke me up and had tears running down my cheeks this morning was one from Grace, Every Day and it said "If you read nothing else today, please read this post." I did and agree. Read it. You won't be sorry.
