The town of Walla Walla is where my brother John and his wife have lived for over 30 years and raised their family of four children. John had his own law practice for many of those years in Walla Walla but two years ago was elected to be a Walla Walla County Superior Court Judge. Needless to say, our first stop in downtown was the local courthouse. John had some free time to show us his area of the building; two offices, a workroom and his courtroom. We even were able to sit in on a hearing over which he presided. Needless to say, I am quite proud of my little brother! Below is a picture of the courthouse. I found the words over the doors quite meaningful: "Judge thyself with sincerity and thou wilt judge others with charity".
