Scarlett Lewis Believes Alex Jones is ‘Truly Sorry’ For Sandy Hook Lies

It was the testimony that put Scarlett Lewis’ mission of choosing love on the world stage.

I think that it’s absolutely incredible that I got to talk about it, that I got to share it with the jury and the world and Alex Jones,” Scarlett Lewis said.

It was the testimony that put Lewis’ mission of choosing love on the world stage.

“I wanted to tell you to your face because I wanted you to know that I am a mother and I know that you are a father and my son existed,” Lewis said in a Texas courtroom earlier this month.

The words from the mother of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewis led the jury to order Alex Jones to pay Lewis and Jesse’s father more than $49 million dollars in damages for the suffering caused by Jones’ lies about the massacre, including that it was hoax and that Lewis was an actress.

“I’ve thought about it and I think that it sent a very strong message out that truth is very important and that you cannot spread lies about people to intentionally harm them or with knowing that it will intentionally harm them and I think it’s a really important thing, especially in our society today. We have to trust one another, we really do. It’s vital for a civilized society,” Lewis said.

“Alex, I want you to hear this too. He’d written three words, nurturing, healing, love,” Lewis said in the courtroom. Those were the three words Jesse wrote on a chalkboard at their home before he was killed.

What Lewis says she wasn’t expecting and what became the centerpiece of the trial was her Choose Love Movement, the organization she founded, inspired those three words on the chalkboard.
