If we want to get to the underlying issues behind school shootings, we need to look deeper. What causes a young man to kill innocent students and teachers? Scarlet Lewis believes it has a lot to do with anger. I agree.
In 2012, Scarlett’s six year old son Jesse was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School along with 19 classmates and six educators.
“Scarlett realized this violent act started with an angry thought in the young man’s head that was responsible for the mass shooting. She also understood that an angry thought can be changed.” Choose Love Movement Website
In response to her son’s death, Scarlett created the Choose Love Movement. I’m sharing about Choose Love today because we so desperately need prevention programs like this one. Choose Love teaches Social and Emotional Learning helping individuals to replace angry thoughts with loving thoughts.
I commend Scarlett Lewis and Choose Love for their continuing mission.
