Episode 166 is Scarlett Lewis and a different podcast for you and me. Scarlett is the mom of Jesse Lewis who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting 6 years ago. That day in December Jesse alongside 19 classmates and six educators lost their lives in a mass shooting. ‪Scarlett takes us through that tragic day from sending Jesse to school, leaving work after hearing about the shooting, arriving back at the school, the meeting place for the parents with missing children, which was a firehouse. Scarlett provides intimate details of this as well as Jesse, JT (Jesse’s older brother) and insight to the Sandy Hook community. We also learn how forgiveness and love play an important role in her life today. A message left behind by Jesse would lead to the Choose Love Enrichment Program founded by Scarlett. The Choose Love Enrichment Program is a no-cost Pre-K through 12th grade social and emotional learning program that teaches educators and their students how to choose love in any circumstance and helps them become connected, resilient, and empowered individuals.
You will want to hear her story and how inspirational Scarlett and the Choose Love Movement are.
