some stuff that I found interesting
In a court, if a lawyer demands a yes/no answer to a question that simply cannot be answered such, what happens if a witness refuses to provide a simple yes/no answer?
Some of the best advice I received before the first time I had to testify in Court came from one of our older County Attorneys. He wanted to prepare me for what the Defense Attorney would do when he cross-examines. He gave me this as a sample question.
Attorney: Do you know what time it is?
Attorney: WRONG! Now you have to explain when was the last time you set your watch, and how old the battery is, and what clock you used to set it by.
Me: Then what do I say?
Attorney: You say “Yes”. He asks you if you know what time it is. You say Yes. Or you say No. But your goal, with every single question, is to provide the most brief answer you can. If he wants to know what time it is, he will ask that too. If he didn’t, you don’t volunteer a darn thing.
It was a crazy concept, because my impulse is always to try and explain things. That’s our nature, I guess. But in the end, attorneys are trained to try to twist things around and make it look as though you are contradicting yourself, even when what you are saying is perfectly true. They can only accomplish that if they have enough information to work with. If you don’t provide them with anything non-essential, that becomes much harder for them to accomplish. And this goes for witnesses and attorneys on either side.
So if they ask you a yes or no question, the best answer is yes or no. If you can’t, then you say “I don’t know.” You want to say as absolutely little as possible, so they don’t take one tiny, insignificant thing you said, not actually relevant to the situation, and twist that around as either a reason to discredit you and make you look like a liar, or as a way to contradict something else that you’ve said previously.
She said, “Don't call the doctor, I want to fall asleep peacefully, with your hand in mine.”
He told her about the past, how they met, their first kiss. they didn't cry, they smiled. They didn't regret anything, they were grateful.
Then she repeated softly, 'I love you forever!'
He returned her words, gave her a soft kiss on the forehead.
She closed her eyes and fell asleep peacefully with her hand in his.
Love is really all that matters because everyone comes into this world with nothing other than love and leaves with nothing other than love.
Think about it. Profession, career, bank account, our goods are just tools, nothing more. Everything stays here. So just love….Love those that really love you. Love, as if there was nothing more important in your life.
A few years ago, a 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…
“Dad, look the trees are going behind us!”
As his Dad smiled, a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, when suddenly he again exclaimed…
“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”
The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…
“Why don’t you take your son to see a good doctor?”
The old man smiled and said…
“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth and he just got his eyes today.”
Remember: Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.
( I bet that shut the rude interfering people up.... )
