Local portrait photographer Sandy Sahagian received a call one day from a young lady asking her to take a portrait, with her car, in the next few days. Sandy had to juggle her schedule around a bit, but was able to help.
Sandy says, "We agreed on a good time of day when the light would be best, and we talked more about her project. Finally it was mentioned it was for a magazine—then it turned out to be SEVENTEEN Magazine! I was so glad I did not just tell her I was too busy. Her compelling story just grabbed at my heartstrings! We had a wonderful time and even though SEVENTEEN had many tough requirements, it was great to get to know them as well, and we were able to meet all their standards with flying colors."
The article, concerning a very dramatic attempted carjacking, appeared in the March issue of the magazine with Sandy's portrait.
Justice is being fair in all that we do. We continually look for the truth, not bowing to other's judgments or perceptions. We do not backbite. We clear up problems face to face. We make agreements that benefit everyone equally. When we commit a wrong, we are honest in correcting it and making amends...
The Practice of Justice: I think for myself. I do not engage in prejudice or backbiting. I make fair agreements. I make restitution for my mistakes. I honor people's rights including my own. I have the courage to stand for the truth. I am thankful for the gift of Justice. It is the guardian of my integrity." —Linda Kavelin Popov.
