As questions linger about the condition of Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., there was little mention of him at Saturday's Rainbow PUSH forum.

Jackson's brother gave the only comment about the congressman.

"On behalf of my brother, I thank you all for your prayers, your ongoing consideration," Jonathon Jackson said.

Doctors say Jackson, Jr. is dealing with a mood disorder.

Other speakers included Andre Davis, who spent 32 years in prison for a rape and murder conviction that was overturned based on DNA evidence.

"The most important for me and how I felt was to simply listen to what God was whispering to my heart, and here I am," Davis said.

Jonathan Jackson remarked Davis's mother has stood by her son the same way his mother is supporting his brother's recovery.
