In this podcast episode, Choosing Love After Tragedy, Scarlett Lewis talks to me about losing her six-year old son in the Sandy Hook Massacre and how she started the Choose Love Movement. Scarlett founded the organization, which advocates teaching kids social emotional skills to help them make positive choices in challenging situations, have courageous conversations, and respond to difficult situations by “choosing love”. She talks about her courageous ability to overcome the unthinkable and why social-emotional learning is the answer to preventing future tragedies.
Scarlett Lewis founded the nonprofit Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement after her son was murdered during the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in December 2012. After his death, Scarlett became part of the solution to the issues that we're seeing in our society—and that also caused the tragedy. She created the Movement and became an advocate for social and emotional learning (SEL) and character development that teaches children how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have healthy relationships. Speaking across the US and internationally to diverse audiences, and now virtually, Scarlett urges everyone to become part of the solution.
Scarlett created the Choose Love for Schools Program, a no-cost, comprehensive, lifespan, next generation SEL and character development program that teaches children and adults how to thoughtfully respond with love in any situation, handle adversity, and have courageous conversations by using the Choose Love Formula of: Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion-in-Action = Choosing Love. Choose Love has been extended into homes, communities, athletics, and the workplace. The programs have been accessed in all 50 states and 110 countries, reaching more than 2 million children.
