Jessica's story is one that encourages us to open our hearts and minds. When we encompass a belief system that does not speak to the ultimate realities of life, I believe we become sheltered and judgemental of the people and world around us. How can we become connected and understanding of one another if we do not allow ourselves the opportunity to do so? Especially when it comes to relating spiritually.

I believe we are a people ment to learn and love on this planet. When our own religious beliefs come in the way of this, there is something wrong. Is not religion about humanity?

Her story should enlighten, empower, and encourage us to want to understand one another, and respect where we come from on our paths to faith, freedom and justice for all.
