Mother of Sandy Hook victim promotes love through Choose Love Movement

Scarlett Lewis’ first step toward healing after her son Jesse’s murder began with three words.

“Three days after Jesse’s murder, I came back to the farmhouse that we shared and I found a note that he had written on our kitchen chalkboard. He had written three words: nurturing, healing love,” said Scarlett.

Jesse’s message not only helped Scarlett to forgive the shooter who ended her son’s life, but also to seek a solution to the violence found in so much of the world. That solution is an initiative called the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement. The Choose Love Movement promotes social and emotional learning (SEL) in schools and homes throughout the country, which is considered a preventative mental health movement.
