Scarlett Lewis, the founder of the Choose Love Foundation, lost her 6 year old son Jesse in the massacre at Sandy Hook. Jesse was granted a Commander in Chief Funeral, the type reserved for heads of state and returning war heroes, because he courageously saved the lives of 9 of his classmates before he was killed. Jesse was considered a hero because his first grade classroom in the United States was considered a literal war zone. We have a huge problem in our country, and Scarlett has an answer in Choose Love.
Scarlett is spending her life on a mission to provide social and emotional intelligence to children in schools in order to prevent the kind of devastating loss that she experienced, the same kind that so many are suffering. Scarlett lives with love, courage, forgiveness, gratitude and a commitment to a vision for a safe world that all of us create together. The time is NOW, and we all know what we need to do. Choose Love.
