Jesse's Journal

Picture from Hometown 

[Picture from Patrick's Place, who got it from, surprise, Jesse]

This is Jesse. His journal, Kool Aid and Ramen, is a wonderful chronicle of his remarkable, young life. He's fighting cancer and he approaches it with the maturity of someone much older than his twenty-one years.

He has a lot to teach us all. And he writes eloquently. http://journals.aol.com/riddlinatari2/KoolAidandRamen/

Tomorrow he has to start another round of chemotherapy.  And it's sure to be difficult.  But we can all make it a little easier for him.

So, take a moment to think good thoughts about him during the day. Say a prayer, if that's your preference.  Read his journal and meditate on something he wrote. Write him a note.   

His story will steal your heart.

Mrs. L

He's a class act, Mrs. L!  I'm glad he's got such a great support system here in J-Land.
