Remembering Jesse

Today we remember Jesse Lewis. It is his 7th birthday... one he should be celebrating here with his mother, Scarlett, his father Neil, and his brother, JT. Instead, this will be the first birthday that Jesse will celebrate in heaven... he is one of the 20 children who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School just six months ago.

Jesse is remembered for his amazing smile, his willingness to always help others, and his courage and faith. He loved to go on adventures and those who knew him best called him a brave little soldier. That fact alone brings his family comfort as they think about those last moments of Jesse's life.

Jesse's mother Scarlett has set up the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation in Jesse's memory... the purpose of this organization is to help children effectively deal with anger which is so crucial to our society today. To read more about Choose Love and leave a donation in Jesse's memory, please click on the link above.

Happy 7th Birthday, Jesse! We will never forget...
