  • To hold the destiny of another human being in your hand - to the extent that one can - is a humbling thing.

    Last week I served my first jury duty.

    Although I'm free to talk about the details of the case, I'm choosing not to. The details aren't relevant to the point I want to make.

    Before the trial, I joked with my friends that I had been practicing.

    "Guilty!" I'd yell and jab my finger in the air. "Off with their heads!"

    I didn't think it would be all that difficult to come to a decision about the case. Yes or no. Guilty or not guilty.

    It's her Golden Birthday - but with a twist. Katie Murley will turn 8 tomorrow on Aug. 8.

    In other words, she'll be 8 on 8/8/08.

    "It's my favorite number," Katie says with a smile.

    A Golden Birthday, also known as a Grand or Star Birthday, is one in which a person turns the age of their birth date.

    Katie says the No. 8 has been lucky for her. Her mother, Jackie Livers, says Katie sometimes thinks the No. 8 has been able to get things "changed" for her, such as a "no" from a parent to a "yes."
