If you are like many people you dread receiving a notice for jury duty. In our stressful, “too little time to do to many things” world, the last thing people have time for is to sit on a jury and decide a case that does not affect their lives. However, next time you receive a jury notice remember that as an American citizen you are given so much and asked so little of in terms of public service. Jury duty is one way in which you can give back to a country that provides the blanket of freedom and liberty we all so enjoy. Studies show that the majority of people who serve on a jury enjoy their experience and would do it again if given a chance. Next time you are asked to serve do so willingly with the knowledge that you are making a difference and with the understanding that it may be you who needs the services of your fellow citizen to decide an important dispute in the future.
