Jessi’s Message (named in honor of Jessica Redfield Ghawi) is the message of ALL survivors who have been traumatized by violence...most often by gun violence. This is a program to teach Survivors how to use compelling words to tell their authentic stories and to educate those in their communities, cities, and states.
“I SAY ALL THE TIME THAT EVERY MOMENT WE HAVE TO LIVE OUR LIFE IS A BLESSING. SO OFTEN I HAVE FOUND MYSELF TAKING IT FOR GRANTED. EVERY HUG FROM A FAMILY MEMBER. EVERY LAUGH WE SHARE WITH FRIENDS. EVEN THE TIMES OF SOLITUDE ARE ALL BLESSINGS. EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY IS A GIFT. ”
