Personal justice, pursuit of happiness

As I headed past the Boston financial district heading to serve as a federal juror, I could not help but ponder if justice would been served, would I have to determine someone fate? I hurried past  an unhappy group of occupy Boston people who had obviously felt justice had not been served.  The signs and sentiment was corporate greed and  government mistrust was prevalent in this camp?  This was a big wow, and how did these people get to this point?

There was a distinct feeling of sadness for the unemployed and many hurting people. Still I had to rush to jury duty to complete my civic duty. Once settle among my peers, I walked out to the lobby and viewed a spectacular view of the Boston harbor. I distinctly imagined sitting on the deck of a beautiful boat enjoying a cup of coffee,the sunrise, and simplistic happiness. Hopefully soon rather than later.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, after all was what made America great. As I completed my civic duty and headed homeward bound, I realized that each person should try to make the world a better place. Life can become so hectic and the pressure intense, we neglect to enjoy simplistic happiness. May the road to justice lead us to a better place!

Happy Thanksgiving!
