    Product Description


        Several weeks after Jesse's physical body died, I found his handwriting on our chalkboard in the kitchen. It is clearly his six-year-old printing, at just the height he could reach on the board. In carefully formed letters, and phonetically spelled, it reads, "Norurting helin love" (Nurturing, healing love). Jesse's babysitter, who was staying with us at the time, had been with him every afternoon and evening. Neither of us, including his brother, had seen him write this prophetic statement. When you read this, you know it was written by the spirit within Jesse, one that was determined to leave a message for his mom, his brother, his extended family, and the world that would comfort and inspire us.
        JT found a personal message from Jesse left in his room, on a piece of paper folded several times in a small rectangle. It was printed with carefully formed letters and said simply, "Have a lot of fun." I have no doubt Jesse wanted JT, (who tended to sometimes have a more serious attitude towards life) to remember to have fun. JT treasures this; he will always know that his little brother was caring about him and had left him this gift of love.
         Over a month has passed since that terrible day, and I still do not read the news, watch TV, or listen to the radio. I have chosen not to hear any facts or rumors surrounding the horrific event that has irrevocably changed my life. Instead, I have chosen to surround myself with the comforting and warm embrace of my family and friends who shared my love for Jesse. The have shown me their love, support and generosity of spirit in ways that I would never have imagined I would need. God is here on Earth- He did not allow this to happen. The outpouring of love from my family and friends, and from all over the world, has shown me that He, without a doubt, works through people to show us His compassion and love. He is with us. 
        I made a conscious decision to face this personal tragedy with love and forgiveness. The outpouring of love and support of our town, the nation and the world has shown that we can unite as one in love, and have victory in the face of evil. I believe this tragedy has changed many lives; many are not choosing a more loving path. We are all faced with a choice when we wake up in the morning-will we choose to live our lives in fear or faith? Then we step out into the world where good and evil do battle every day. It is the charge of each one of us to bring light and love into the world and we do this by every thought and interaction we have on a daily basis.
