I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

Your pal, Jess

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

Syria stats

an ugly situation (of course, it's a civil war)

not so civil-

from the economist:
70,000 lives lost
10's of thousands missing
150-200 thousand locked up
2m homeless (inside Syria)
almost 1m living in squalor, over the borders (JLT, my initials: Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey)
4m + lack fuel, electricity, telephone, and food
thousands of homes, factories, schools, and hospitals razed

Bashar al Assad, the dictator, has 50k loyal, well-armed troops
the opposition is not united, and occasionally fight one another, too.
